Global Wind Energy
Research Collaboration

Advancing wind energy research, development and deployment

The IEA Wind TCP is an international co-operation of 24 countries and sponsor members
that share information and research activities to advance wind energy deployment.


About us

Founded in 1977, the International Energy Agency Wind Technology Collaboration Programme is an international co-operation that shares information and research to advance wind energy research, development and deployment in member countries. The consortium operates under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA).


IEA Wind TCP member governments establish national targets for renewable energy and wind energy, design market mechanisms and energy policies, and fund research and development (R&D) programs to help reach these targets.


As of 2020, about 85% of the world’s wind generating capacity–and nearly all offshore capacity–resides within the participating countries. To learn more about the work of each participating member, please click on any of the countries or sponsors below.


The IEA Wind TCP is always looking for new members across the globe, and potential new member countries are encouraged to attend meetings and begin the process of joining. For more information on joining the IEA Wind TCP please contact the Secretariat.


The IEA Wind TCP Secretariat is responsible for communications between the members of the ExCo and between the ExCo and Operating Agents, and supporting the ongoing development of the Wind TCP.


The IEA Wind TCP’s Executive Committee, or ExCo, has overall control of the information exchange and R&D tasks. The ExCo consists of one member and one alternate member from each contracting party.


In addition to their national wind energy development and deployment efforts, each member country participates in at least one IEA Wind TCP research task. R&D tasks performed are approved by the ExCo as Annexes to the original Implementing Agreement.
