Wind power



Wind power leads the global growth of renewables

By 2030 wind power will grow to a major generation technology, expected to produce around 15 % of global electricity. The vide variety of market and climate conditions  creates market differentiation, new business opportunities and jobs both globally and locally in manufacturing, construction, operation and maintenance.

We believe that new products and services based on combination of expertise on wind power technology, Big Data and Internet of Things will change the business landscape also in wind power. VTT is active in many international r&d networks to make the most of it to the benefit of our clients and partners.

Combine VTT's expertise with your needs

We have more than 25 years of experience of developing technology to create new business opportunities and to bring wind power cost competitive in power generation, especially in cold climates.
