Enabling Wind to Contribute to a Distributed Energy Future

About Task 41

The purpose of IEA Wind Task 41 is to coordinate international research on distributed wind turbine technology, technology development, or assessment to allow distributed wind to integrate into future markets, and processes or procedures to support the cost-effective development of distributed wind technologies. Technology to be considered within this Task will include wind turbines deployed in a distributed application, connected at a distribution voltage (nominally 70 kV) or below in a behind-the-meter, in-front-of-the-meter, or an off-grid application. In the context of this IEA Task, distributed wind includes all scales of wind turbine technologies and is agnostic to business model, although in some instances (e.g., technology standards), more specific industry segregation is included. This is expected to be a 4-year effort.
