What is the IWG Wind?
The SET-Plan Implementation Working Group on Wind Energy (IWG Wind) drives and facilitates the R&I coordination between EU Member States to enable the acceleration of the development and deployment of wind energy in Europe. It gathers representatives from the Member States in charge of R&I programmes at the national level.
Main goals of the IWG Wind:
- Strengthening cooperation between Member States to accelerate the development of wind energy projects and maximising synergies in their transnational, national and regional R&I programmes for wind energy.
- Defining a common Implementation Plan – or equivalent document – aiming at accelerating the development of wind energy in Europe and achieve the technology targets that will place Europe at the forefront of the next generation wind technologies.
- Guiding the revision of the National Energy & Climate Plans (NECPs) so they reflect the R&I priorities defined by the EU and the wind industry.
- Ensuring and supporting the implementation of wind energy projects at the national level.
