Project description

The ultimate, high level objective of SWIFT is to maximize the integration of wind turbines in the distribution grid while minimizing the amount of lost wind energy at the lowest possible overall cost. With innovative forecasting, active network and demand side management methods, we aim to increase the hosting capacity of the distribution grid, and consequently, open up opportunities for more renewable power generation.
