To participate in the research activities of Task 43, researchers must reside in a country that participates in the IEA Wind Agreement AND has agreed by official letter to participate in Task 43. The participating member country of the 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. 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.
What is Digitalization?
From Gartner: " Digitalization is the use of digital technologies to change a business model and provide new revenue and value-producing opportunities; it is the process of moving to a digital business."
In Task 43 this means that we are working to use data, analytics, and sensing to change the way the wind industry works. We hope to bring together many disparate technologies in a coherent and seamless way to accelerate wind energy deployment while optimizing operations and life assessment. This should mean that we can reduce the cost of energy, improve decision making and empower workers up and down the supply chain.
How can I get engaged?
We welcome participation from a broad range of experts. Please email us or join the slack channel (ieawinddigitalization.slack.com) for more information on getting started.
What are you working on?
We currently have five active areas of investigation:
- Work Package 1: Roadmap
- Technical Area 2: Data Standards and Data Sharing
- Technical Area 3: Data Science
- Work Package 4: Digital Wind Resource Assessment
- Work Package 5: Digital Operations & Maintenance
