The international expert group IEA Wind TCP Task 19 "Wind Energy in Cold Climates" gathers and provides information about wind energy in cold climates. Cold Climate areas are regions where icing events or periods with temperatures below the operational limits of standard wind turbines occur, which may impact project implementation, economics and safety.
Our mission is to improve large scale deployment of cold climate wind power in a safe and economically feasible manner.
The group studies a variety of topics, including: project development; operation and maintenance (O&M); health, safety and environment (HSE), standardization and recent research.
The current, highly ambitious Task 19 working period runs between 2019-2021 and covers the following themes, topics and tentative delivery schedule:
