Workshop Presentations

Presentations for the Small Wind Workshop hosted by NREL in 2008 focused on International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for testing wind turbines, how to apply them to small wind turbines, the formation of the American Wind Energy Association standard, the purpose of the Small Wind Certification Council, the need for increased independent testers (aka Regional Test Centers), and how NREL's NWTC can support those Regional Test Centers.
