IEA Task 41 is building the team of participating countries. Current participants are:
Belgium: Vrije Universiteit Brussel Engineering
Canada: Nergica and University of Calgary
China: Chinese Wind Energy Association
Denmark: Nordic Folkecenter for Renewable Energy and Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
Ireland: Centre for Renewable Energy at Dundalk Institute of Technology
Italy: University of Perugia
Korea: Korea Institute of Energy Research
Spain: Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (CIEMAT)
United States: National Renewable Energy Laboratory Wind Program and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
The participating member country of the IEA Wind Technology Collaboration Programme must designate a lead institution that agrees to the obligations of Task participation (i.e., agree to perform specified parts of the IEA Task 41 Work Plan). The United States is covering the annual fee but requires a completed participation form.
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. The value of the research performed is many times the cost of the country participation fee or the labor contributed to carrying out the Work Plan.
