The Compact High Efficiency Generator (CHEG) project aims to reduce the cost of wind energy.

Wind turbines at sea

As the market for large offshore wind turbines increases, the requirement to reduce the cost of energy becomes more important. The installed base of offshore wind turbines is expected to rise by up to 5 GW per year through to 2020.

This project aims to advance the state of the art in wind turbine generator technology by reducing the cost of the turbine and increasing the efficiency of the generator to reduce cost of energy. Read more…
