To participate in the research activities of Task 46, researchers must reside in a country that participates in the IEA Wind Agreement AND has agreed by official letter to participate in Task 46. 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.
The Task work is coordinated by Operating Agents (OAs) from organizations VTT and DTU represented respectively by Raúl Prieto and Charlotte Bay Hasager.
The plenary assembly formed by all participants is the primary decision-making body of the Task. Plenary meetings/teleconferences are held every six months to plan and monitor task progress. Plenary assemblies are chaired by OAs.
The work plan is be submitted for approval by the Executive Committee, with annual status updates. OAs report annually to IEA Wind Executive Committee.
Work Package Leaders and Co-Leaders coordinate the technical content within their work packages.
