This report describes the results of an analysis tracing the technological influence of wind energy research funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) and its precursor programs, as well as wind energy research funded by other offices in DOE. A total of 174 wind energy patents are confirmed to be associated with WETO funding (114 U.S. patents, 36 EPO patents, and 24 WIPO patents). Wind energy research funded by WETO, and by DOE in general, has had a significant influence on subsequent developments, both within and beyond wind energy technology. This influence can be seen upon innovations associated with the leading wind energy companies. It can also be traced in other technologies, notably power distribution and electrical generators and motors.
