Title: Atmosphere to Electrons (A2e)

A2e is a multi-year, multi-stakeholder DOE research and development initiative tasked with improving wind plant performance and mitigating risk and uncertainty to achieve substantial reduction in the cost of wind energy production. The A2e strategic vision will enable a new generation of wind plant technology, in which smart wind plants are designed to achieve optimized performance stemming from more complete knowledge of the inflow wind resource and complex flow through the wind plant. Focus areas include high fidelity modeling, verification, and validation; aeroacoustics; integrated wind plant control; integrated systems and analysis; reliability; and data archiving.
