GL Garrad Hassan recognises outstanding wind power PhD thesis
Dr Martínez, an Associate Professor with the Department of Electronics and Telecommunication at the University of the Basque Country, is the co-author of 14 published papers in international journals, two patents and has participated in numerous research projects on power electronics and renewable energy.
GL Garrad Hassan founded the PhD award in 2012 in order to support Research & Development, teaching and the creation of new knowledge. The prize hopes to encourage the development of technology and processes which lead to more effective wind turbines,and reduce the costs of renewable energy projects, to both generate more energy more effectively from the wind and ensure that more of this energy reaches consumers at a lower cost. The award is a cash prize of €5,000.
Eleven theses of outstanding quality from nine countries were submitted for consideration for the award. Innovation and cost of energy were the primary dimensions used by the evaluation committee to determine the winner. Some of the other thesis topics included: predicting wind power in marine and coastal environments, the aerodynamics and near wake of an offshore floating horizontal axis wind turbine, optimising thermal energy recovery, utilisation and management in the process industries, and performance evaluation of wave energy converters.
