Welcome to Task 30 –
Countries will pay 5,000 €/year to participate. Within each participating country, there is no limit on the number of experts who can contribute, but each contributor should be approved by the country’s IEA Wind ExCo representative (see IEA Wind ExCo Contact List). Meetings are hosted by participants that donate the costs of holding the meeting. Based on the three-year work plan, the combined participants will contribute an estimated 71.5 person-months of effort directly toward the work of this task with an additional 111 person-months of indirect effort. This total support amounts to approximately 15 person-years of research provided to each country in return for 15,000 € in fees and the in-kind research labor of its national participants.
