The Wind Energy course covers the full spectrum of wind energy from the underlying physics of wind and wind generation technologies, to practical issues including site
prospecting, project financing, regulation and societal aspects. The course is delivered in collaboration between ANU Energy academics and Windlab, a Canberra-based
innovative wind energy company that was a winning bidder in the 2015 ACT Government 200MW Wind Energy Reverse Auction. In addition to meeting the demand for up-todate,
structured knowledge in Wind Energy, the course cements scientific collaboration between ANU and Windlab, and opens up prospects for students to undertake
research internships with Windlab as part of their degree.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Proficiently apply advanced knowledge of wind physics and characterisation and manage wind data uncertainty.
- Critically evaluate key wind farm planning studies and explain implications for wind farm development.
- Professionally apply systematic engineering methods including wind mapping and modelling to design wind farms.
- Understand and apply key elements of typical legal agreements used in wind energy development, key aspects of the economics of wind energy projects, and basic financial models.
- Critically evaluate different wind energy policy environments and analyse and critique the relative merits of alternative policy scenarios.
- Communicate effectively with colleagues and others employing a range of communication media and tools.
- Engage in independent investigation and reflection.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Taught as an intensive course.
3-5 hours of lectures per day for 8 days and full day site visit to local windfarm.
Assessment submission and presentation extends for approximately six weeks after course complete
