IEA Wind Task 41 supports the use of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) data principles. Watch this video to learn more about FAIR.

The Selecting, Implementing, and Funding Distributed Wind Systems In Federal Facilities on-demand, web-based training was designed for United States Federal agencies, but most of the material is relevant to any entity interested in learning about distributed wind projects. The training is divided into modules, and only the module about procurement and financing is specific to federal agencies. Accessing the training requires creating a free account.

The U.S. Department of Energy publishes annual distributed wind market reports.
