    • EAWE presents it’s 2019 Scientific Award to Prof. James Manwell

      The European Academy of Wind Energy has presented the 2019 EAWE Scientific Award to Prof. James F. Manwell. The award was handed over during the conference banquet of the Wind Energy Science Conference in Cork on June 19, 2019.

      Prof. James (Jim) F. Manwell is the Director of the Wind Energy Center at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the USA. Jim received a B.A. in Biophysics from Amherst College, an M.S. and a PhD from the University of Massachusetts. His areas of research and expertise are in:

      • Offshore wind energy system design and analysis
      • Remote sensing techniques applied to wind resource assessment
      • Hybrid power and battery storage

      Dr. Manwell has served on the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) and the International Council for Science Panel on Renewable Energies (ISPRE). He is a founding member and one of the main forces behind the North American Wind Energy Academy (NAWEA). He has been honored with awards from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), the U. S. Department of Energy and the University of Massachusetts.

      Jim has distinguished himself not only for his lifelong commitment to wind energy, but also for his educational activities. We all have in our offices his famous book “Wind Energy Explained” (coauthored with Jon McGowan and Anthony Rogers), which has contributed to the education of countless wind energy professionals.

      We thank Prof. Manwell for his vision, service to the community and good work.
