Wind power, a promising renewable energy technology, has been rapidly developed in recent years. It is becoming a competitive energy technology as the installation capacity continues to increase and the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) is reducing. Wind power is expected to play an important role in future sustainable and decarbonized energy systems. However, in order to facilitate wind power replacing the present fossil-fuel-based energy technology, further innovation efforts will be required to improve the efficiency and reliability of wind turbines; to enhance the controllability and dispatch ability of wind power plants in the power grid; and to increase the economic performance and utilization of wind energy in overall energy systems. These efforts will cover a wide range of subject areas, including various engineering disciplines, energy market, economics and policies, as well as social and environmental aspects.
Here, we intend to produce a Special Issue, entitled “Challenges and Perspectives of Wind Energy Technology”, to discuss the present technical challenges and promising solutions for the further development of wind energy.
The Special Issue will publish the new contributions in wind-energy-related areas of engineering, environmental science, economic analysis, and policy impacts. The main readers will include those in academia, research institutions, industrial sectors, and policy makers.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Forecast of wind and wind power;
- Wind turbine technologies, including turbine rotors, structural, mechanical, and electrical systems, and relevant aspects;
- Wind turbine operation and control;
- Wind power plant and grid integration;
- Offshore wind power;
- Wind energy utilization in energy and other systems, such as Wind Power-X;
- Wind power in the energy market and economics;
- Condition monitoring, maintenance, and reliability of wind power systems;
- Environmental and socio-economic aspects of wind power technology.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Wind is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
