About the course
Using the skills from previous courses and course literature regarding the economics and planning of a project, each student will make a feasibility study for a wind power project. The course addresses the identification of the project's stakeholders, its investment and financing, the planning system in which it is to be built, contract responsibility as well as project planning and auditing. During the feasibility study, both the windPRO and WAsP wind resource assessment tools will be used.
