Distributed Wind Data

The PNNL research team continually collects cost, incentive, generation, and customer data from turbine manufacturers, operations and maintenance providers, state and federal agencies, and other stakeholders for distributed wind projects installed in the United States. These data are critical for identifying trends and opportunities for growth, as well as prioritizing investments for both the Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technology Office and industry stakeholders. Making this information available allows interested parties to better understand distributed wind market trends and characteristics. Additional information can be found on PNNL's distributed wind research webpage.

Database

A selection of the characteristics tracked for each project in the dataset is displayed below. This table may be searched, filtered, or sorted to quickly identify projects based on their location, year online, project capacity, turbine capacity, turbine manufacturer & model, installer or developer, owner, or power purchaser. The visual table display also notes whether or not the wind turbines are integrated with other distributed energy resources as part of a hybrid project.

For a tutorial on how to use the database, please watch this demonstration video.

Please note that the dataset is not complete or perfect and we welcome your input. There may be duplicate entries and there are many incomplete entries. If you have information to share that would improve this dataset, including new or missing projects, or additional information on existing projects, please contact PNNL with this email link.

Rural Electric Cooperatives

Thank you to our collaboration partner, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association's RADWIND Project team, for their instrumental role in and funding for the development of this dataset display. The full, downloadable dataset includes the owner, interconnecting utility, and power purchaser for each project (as applicable and when available). This will allow cooperatives to identify distributed wind projects in cooperative territories and whether the projects are cooperative-owned, consumer-member owned, or if the energy is purchased by a cooperative.
