Governmental & NGO Collaboration

Issues of sustainability frequently map back to large societal structures that are in the purview of governmental policy. The SSDL therefore works with governmental and non-governmental organizations to contribute technical understanding to their activities, as well as to inform the work undertaken in the lab and ensure the directions taken are consistent with real-world constraints and issues.

Members of the SSDL are involved with various standards committees including:

  • IEA Task 29 MEXICO Rotor Project
  • IEA Task 27 Small Wind Turbine Labels
  • IEC/CSA 61400-2 Small Wind Turbine Standards
  • IEC TC114 Canadian Tidal Energy Standards Subcomittee
