Bergen Energy Lab (BEL)

Newsletter - October

Wind Farm

Main content

Welcome to the 2nd edition of the Energy Lab newsletter!


During the month of September, major results from several years of research on offshore wind were presented at the successful NORCOWE conference in Bergen. In this issue of the Newsletter we choose to focus on offshore wind. We have a report from the conference, interviews with key people, discussion of prospects for the future for Norwegian companies and research groups, and interviews with one professor, one recently graduated PhD student and one energy master student - enjoy reading their perspectives! And as usual the Newsletter includes some selected miscellaneous energy news from around the world.

Finally, on the 29th of September, the University Board approved a proposed framework for organising the university priority area "Climate and Energy Transition" (Marine Research and Global Challenges are the other two). The dean of the faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is now charged to work with all the other faculties to come back with a program and plan for this whole area in time for the board meeting on 1 December. This is a major milestone, and we are all looking forward to contributing.
