About Task 41

Technology considered within IEA Task 41 includes wind turbines deployed in a distributed application and 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.
