Our energy system of today has to stop smoking! Otherwise it will die of cancer. The healthy alternative in the future is green, sustainable and renewable. The transitional surgery poses plenty of combined challenges for mathematics and engineering. Some of these challenges will be elaborated on during this lecture. They address the design of weather-driven fully renewable energy systems on a continental scale, the optimisation of wind farms and the modelling of wind fields.
