IEA Wind Task 43
Unlock the full value of wind energy through digital transformation.
Act as a digital transformation catalyst by driving open collaboration within and beyond the wind community to deliver insights, recommendations, standards and tools in the key areas of data, culture, and coopetition.
The Grand Challenges in the Digitalisation of Wind Energy
Our activities are based on the three "Grand Challenges in the Digitalisation of Wind Energy", Data, Culture and Coopetition. Read more by clicking on the image below:
As well as a Working Group for task management (WG0), we organise IEA Wind Task 43 around three Working Groups for the three Grand Challenges of Digitalisation in Wind Energy (WG1, WG2, WG3) as well as a fourth one for use-case demonstrations (WG4).
In each WG, we focus on (1) gaining knowledge and understanding, then (2) creating recommendations, both for the sector as a whole and also for the rest of the IEA Wind Task 43 participants, and then (3) developing and testing usable tools in a safe environment based on the recommendations. We regularly review and adapt our activities according to inputs from the industry as well as our learning experience.
Working Group 0: Task Management
Working Group 2: Culture
Working Group 3: Coopetition
Working Group 4: Use Case Demonstration
We run regular use case “deep dive” workshops in order to allow the priority use cases to be worked on by all task participants. The goal of these deep dives is to quantify the value of digitalisation in solving the key frustrations (or «pain points») related to each activity (or «use case»”, e.g. how much can the efficiency be improved or costs reduced?
