U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) facilities span the United States and offer wind research capabilities to meet industry needs. The Wind Energy Facilities book, produced by the Wind Energy Technologies Office, highlights the testing facilities that make it possible for wind technology companies and inventors to validate and commercialize their technologies.

This guide represents the wind laboratory and testing facilities supported by DOE, which are available for industry use and that make it possible for industry players to increase reliability, improve efficiency, and reduce the cost of wind energy. DOE wind energy testing facilities are geographically diverse and possess unique capabilities that allow the nation to usher in new and innovative generations of wind energy technology.
