Abstract

An increasing number of wind turbines are being installed at sites where atmospheric icing and low operating temperatures have a significant effect on the operation of standard equipment. International Energy Agency; IEA R&D Wind, started an annex XIX; “Wind Energy in Cold Climates” in 2002. This international collaboration has gathered information about wind turbine operation cold climates ever since. Due to the observed need, a three year extension period was applied. This paper introduces the results until now and the objectives for the future work, which aim at reducing the cost of wind electricity produced in cold climates.
