The Braunschweig Wind Energy Experiments (WX) facility is a young, growing organisational unit founded as part of the continuation of wind energy research by the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
Following the necessary planning and building work, the facility will operate a research wind farm equipped with unique research infrastructure in Krummendeich (Stade district). In addition, WX supports and coordinates the research of the institutes working in this field. This involves close cooperation with the Institute of Aeroelasticity, the Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology, the Institute of Composite Structures and Adaptive Systems, the Institute of Flight Systems and the Institute of Atmospheric Physics. The WX facility will also partner with and support the research projects of external research bodies and industry.
