Sandia National Laboratories Wind Energy Program has released its Wind Energy Program FY22 Accomplishments Report. The portfolio consists of projects funded by the DOE EERE Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO), Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), DOE Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office, and the Sandia Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) Program.  

The Wind Energy Program currently structures research in five Capability Thrust Areas and three Enabling Capability and Application Cross-Cuts. The current Program strategy, developed in 2019 includes: 

  • Rotor Innovations and Operations 
  • Offshore Design Optimization 
  • Wind Plant Data Science and Artificial Intelligence 
  • Grid Integration and Power Systems 
  • Solutions to National Security Technology Barriers 

Enabling Capacity and Application “Cross-Cuts” include: 

  1. Control and Sensors 
  1. Plant Experimentation 
  1. Advanced Modeling.  

The accomplishments were made possible through capabilities investments by WETO, internal Sandia investment, and partnerships between Sandia and other national laboratories, universities, and research institutions around the world. 

Sandia’s Wind Energy Program consists of the Wind Energy Design and Experimentation and the Wind Energy Computational Sciences departments. There are currently 30 staff members leading and supporting research and development, as well as staff from other departments supporting the program by leveraging Sandia’s unique capabilities in other disciplines.
