InnoDC (Innovative tools for offshore wind and direct current (DC) grids) is training 15 talented PhD researchers in the exciting field of renewable energy and DC grids.
Why do research on DC grids?
Europe’s power system has seen significant changes in recent decades, notably the development of renewable energy sources. However, this transition is far from complete, and further changes are essential to make our energy system ready to contribute to the United Nations’ climate goals. Renewable energy sources are increasing their share of electricity generation, and this is particularly the case for offshore wind energy. InnoDC’s 14 member organisations are training the researchers to play their role in the energy transition that will take place over the next 20-40 years. InnoDC is preparing them to maintain Europe’s position of leadership in renewable smart energy and in tackling climate change.
InnoDC is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research & innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 765585.
