DE-FOA-0001155: RFI: Acceleration of Distributed Generation from Wind Energy Systems

Defining distributed wind by technology application, rather than size, has shifted the Research and Development (R&D) paradigm to include all wind technologies used in distributed applications (small, medium, and large), not just small wind turbines. DOE invites input from the public regarding this shift in perspective and the Wind Program’s present research and development focus areas, which include Wind Resource Characterization & Assessment; Turbine Technology; Distributed Grid Integration; and Soft Cost Reduction. Comments that can be used to evaluate DOE’s new perspective on distributed wind and research and development focus areas will help inform future activities and priorities.
