About Task 19

The international expert group IEA Wind TCP Task 19 “Wind Energy in Cold Climates” gathers and provides information about wind energy in cold climates

Cold Climate areas are regions where icing events or periods with temperatures below the operational limits of standard wind turbines occur, which may impact project implementation, economics and safety.

Our mission is to improve large scale deployment of cold climate wind power in a safe and economically feasible manner.

The group studies a variety of topics, including: project development; operation and maintenance (O&M); health, safety and environment (HSE), standardization and recent research.

Task 19 Participants

Who can participate in Task 19?

To participate in the research activities of Task 19, researchers must reside in a country that participates in the IEA Wind Agreement AND has agreed by official letter to participate in Task 19.

To join a task, a member country of IEA Wind TCP must designate a lead institution that agrees to the obligations of task participation (pay the annual fee and agree to perform specified parts of the work plan).

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.

For more information, please contact the Operating Agent, Timo Karlsson or the IEA Wind Secretariat.
