George Xydis is a National Representative of the European COST Action TU0902 "Integrated assessment technologies to support the sustainable development of urban areas", and a member of the Management Committee. He graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and holds a Mechanical Engineering degree. He holds a Ph.D degree in engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. He now works as a Scientist (Assist. Professor) in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. He is a member of the World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) since 2009.
Being a certified WAsP user and having studied and developed more than 1700 MW of Renewable Energy Projects (wind mainly) we have gained significant experience in the sector so far and always continue to work on gaining more. We have dealt with site topography identification, correlation of short-term data with long-term data, estimation of energy production, design & energy output optimization, analysis of wind resource data from meteorological masts and maps, energy analyses, technical analyses, business plans etc.
Apart from renewable energy sector for some years now we have been involved in a number of environmental related EU funded projects.
Our main focus areas include (but are not limited to):
- Developing Wind Speed Prognostic Models (as Wind Farm planning tools)
- Air Psychrometrics Analyses (and effects on wind/solar power output)
- Energy Systems Modeling & Optimal Resource Planning
- Low Carbon Technologies (LCT) and Built Environment
- Resource Efficiency and Sectorial Analysis
- Wind Resource Analysis
- Demand Response
- Exergy Analysis
- Urban Planning
