About Task 43
Our mission is to help bring about a revolution in the way the wind energy industry uses technology. We aim to provide a platform for the dissemination of great ideas, best practices, and collaboration. Specifically, we are working to understand the optimal pathways for the adoption of digital technologies such as:
Data Standards and Data Sharing
Machine Learning and AI
Data Analytics and Visualization
Open Source Tools
For the latest information please visit our website and slack channel.
Who can participate in Task 43?
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.
For more information, please contact one of the Operating Agent representatives, Jason Fields and Berthold Hahn, or the Secretary of IEA Wind TCP.

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?
