The Wind & Economy software is a spin-off of the EU funded R&D project DTOC, the Design Tool for Offshore Wind Farm Cluster. This project, initiated and led by the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA), brings models from leading edge research together with the practical needs and experiences of high-impact industry partners. 

"A robust, efficient, easy to use and flexible tool created to facilitate the optimised design of individual and clusters of offshore wind farms.”

The EERA-DTOC project mission.

A great advantage of the close cooperation of researchers, end-users and software developers is the coupling of meteorological, wind farm effect and economical models which are not only from leading edge research and optimised for large offshore wind clusters, but are also verified with actual offshore applications and measurements.
