Welcome to IEA Wind and Past and Present Research Task Summaries

The following links are presented for quick information about the many research tasks that make up IEA Wind past and present.

All tasks are established to study and research wind energy on a two year or longer time period. While the research is being conducted all results are for private use only. After the task has ended its research a one year waiting period must expire before the results are made public. Not all Tasks are active.
