The Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) leads the nation's efforts to accelerate the deployment of wind power technologies through improved performance, lower costs, and reduced market barriers. The Program works with national laboratories, industry, universities, and other federal agencies to conduct research and development activities through competitively selected, directly funded, and cost-shared projects. Efforts target both land-based and offshore wind power to fully support the clean energy economy. To accelerate the deployment of wind power, the program conducts the following key activities: Research and Development, Wind Turbine Testing and Certification, Market Acceleration and Deployment, and Wind Resource Assessment and Grid Integration.
