There are a very large number of sites dealing with wind turbines and wind power. In the present context, the sites of interest are those of manufacturers of wind turbines. These are the sources of basic data on wind turbines that are needed for the WindPower program. The list below contains only those manufacturers whose turbines are in our database. As turbines are added to the database so this list of manufacturers will expand.

Manufacturers of 'small' turbines - typically from 1 kilowatt to around 100 kilowatts.

Aeolos Wind Energy Ltd. (UK)
Aventa (Swiss)
Bergey Wind Power (USA)
C&F Green Energy (Ireland)
Eoltec (France)
Ergycon (Italy)
Evance (UK)
Joliet Wind Turbines (Spain/France)
Gaia-Wind (Denmark and UK)
Hummer Dynamo (China)
Kestrel Wind Turbines (South Africa)
Marlec Renewable Power (UK)
Northern Power (US)
Kingspanwind (formerly Proven) (UK)
QuietRevolution (UK - VAWT)
Temiskaming Independent Energy (Canada)
UseTheWind (UK)
West Wind Turbines (UK from Australia)
SouthWest Windpower (US)
Wind Energy Solutions BV (Holland)
Wind Spot turbines by SonkyoEnergy (Spain)
Xzeres Wind USA)

Manufacturers of large wind turbines - typically from 100 kilowatts to greater than a megawatt.

Enercon (Germany)
Gamesa (Spain)
General Electric (US)
Nordex (Germany)
Repower (Germany)
Siemens (Germany)
Suzlon (India)
Vergnet (France)
Vestas (Denmark)

Please let us know through our "Contact Us" Web page if there are other manufacturers and wind turbines that should be included in our database. There are some important omissions from the above list because the manufacturers concerned do not include power curve details of their wind turbines on their websites. These are:-
Alstom Ecotecnia
Acciona (Spain)
Mitsubishi Wind Turbines (Japan)
