The participating member country of the IEA Wind Technology Collaboration Programme must designate a lead institution that agrees to the obligations of Task participation (i.e., agree to perform specified parts of the IEA Task 41 Work Plan
). The United States is covering the annual fee but requires a completed participation form
Active researchers (performing part of the Work Plan) benefit from meetings and professional exchange during the term of the Task.
Countries participating in the Task benefit from the information developed by the Task. The value of the research performed is many times the cost of the country participation fee or the labor contributed to carrying out the Work Plan.
