The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) invests in high-risk, transformational technological innovations that are essential for the advancement of U.S. wind systems, while continually addressing market and deployment barriers, including siting and environmental impacts and grid integration.

For the past four decades, DOE's wind researchers have led the nation’s efforts to improve performance, lower costs, and accelerate deployment of wind technologies on land and offshore. See how our research and development investments have advanced coding and design tools, improved component design and fabrication, accelerated wind turbine technology, supported testing facilities, reduced market barriers, and more.
