Wind power is a key renewable source of energy, accounting for nearly 5 percent of electricity produced in the United States. At PNNL, we're committed to advancing wind energy through our expertise in atmospheric sciences, modeling, data management, and market analysis. Recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) as a leader in wind power research, our work focuses on improving ways to forecast wind patterns, optimize wind farms, and integrate wind energy with the power grid.
