This project implies numerous strategies that will increase the production of Wind Energy by minimising the cost production and implying a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) in wind parks. 

How to reduce capital and operational expenditure (CAPEX and OPEX) in a control network infrastructure? 

''Today, many wind parks are deployed and planned across Europe but the main challenges lies in scalable and effective deployment.''

VirtuWind proposes innovative application of SDN - Software Defined Networking and NFV - Networks Functions Virtualisation. 

VirtuWind will help drive these innovations: 

Industrial Grade Quality of Service 

Cost savings 

"Green, renewable Energy is fundamental to European growth. A large portion of this will come from wind energy."
