    The evolution of modern wind turbines is a remarkable story of engineering and scientific skill. Over the last 20 years, the cost of wind energy has been steadily reduced and power has increased by a factor of 100. Technically, all categories of turbines are, to a varying degree, on the frontier of technology research. The objective of this Lecture Series is to review the state-of-the-art in current wind turbine technologies and set the perspectives for new potentials in terms of R&D. World experts will present the fundamentals of ground wind conditions, the detailed aerodynamic and structural design issues, advances in experimental testing and condition monitoring, cold climate and icing problems, etc. Future research areas will be addressed in a concluding session on new potentials for wind turbines.
