Welcome to the National Wind Technology Center's Information Portal for wind and water power research.
Over the past two decades, the U.S. Department of Energy has sponsored software development and data collection for use by the wind and water power engineering community. The software and data on this website are primarily for the benefit of the U.S. Government and organizations that collaborate with the Department of Energy's Wind and Water Power Technologies Office. Others are welcome to use the software and data, but please note that they are meant for professionals with expertise in wind and/or water power technologies.
You can browse the site without logging in, but most downloads require registering for an account and logging in with a username and password.
