The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) Distributed Wind Research Program seeks to enable wind technology as an affordable, accessible, and compatible distributed energy resource (DER) option for individuals, businesses, and communities.

WETO’s Distributed Wind Research Program includes national laboratory projects and partnerships with industry and academia. WETO organized the Distributed Wind Research Program Workshop to bring together laboratory and industry project stakeholders to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Educate – Create a shared high-level understanding for the breadth of WETO’s distributed wind research
  2. Collaborate – Facilitate coordination and collaboration between funding recipients to leverage resources
  3. Innovate – Understand future research challenges and opportunities.

This workshop convened over 80 participants from various organizations. Workshop participants were asked for their individual feedback based on their own expertise and experience.
