Task 26 – Participation

To participate in Task 26 your country must be a member of the IEA Wind Implementing Agreement (See How to Participate for details of joining). Once your country is a member of IEA Wind, an organization within your country must become a participant in Task 26 and agree to the terms of the Task proposal. This will include both paying the annual fee to the Task Common Fund that supports administrative activities and providing in-kind research effort as outlined in the Task 26 work plan. The fee is $7,815 USD. Once a country joins the Task, many organizations within that country may participate at no extra charge. Usually, each participating country is already conducting related work that can contribute to the objectives of the task.

The Operating Agent for Task 26 is Maureen Hand with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.  Participating countries and institution links include:
