Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) is an international research institute for energy and nuclear technology with about 550 employees in five sectors. IFE's mandate is to undertake research and development, on an ideal basis and for the benefit of society, within the Energy and Petroleum sector and to carry out assignments in the field of nuclear technology. The paramount goal of the institute's energy research is to contribute to effective energy consumption and to the development and introduction of new environmental friendly energy systems, processes and products.
FE has been doing wind energy research for more than 30 years. In the recent years the focus has been on offshore. Reducing the costs of energy is vital for offshore wind and lies at the core of IFE's wind energy research. The perhaps most important technical tool for industry and R&D organizations is wind turbine simulation software. IFE develop the 3DFloat software. It is state of the art software for integrated simulations of wind turbines on land, offshore bottom fixed or floating.
