In January 2020, the number of global wind energy certificates released on the official website of IECRE exceeded 100, among which 22 have been obtained by Goldwind, accounting for about one fifth.
The IECRE wind energy certificate is issued by the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications (IECRE), covering the certifications for whole wind turbines, blades, rotor nacelle assembly, towers, accessories, transformers, gearboxes, and other parts. The certificate ensures that the certification results of different countries can be widely accepted around the world, thereby eliminating the technical barriers to trade and promoting international trade.
The sixth IECRE REMC conference was held in Feldkirch, Austria in November 2019.
Standards are the cornerstone for the development of technologies and can effectively promote the healthy development of industries. For many years, Goldwind has been actively engaging in the formulation of international and domestic standards. As of the end of 2019, Goldwind has participated in more than 20 international standards and research topics of the IEC and the IEA, and more than 100 domestic standards. It is an active drafter of and contributor to international and domestic standards. Given its outstanding performance in standardization, in October 2019, Goldwind won the 2019 China Standardization Support Award presented by the China Association for Standardization.
International standards and certifications play a vital role in the technical development of the wind power industry. With the advancement of technologies and the use of new methods and tools, the formulation of technical standards related to wind power has also moved toward new directions, such as probability-based load computation, service life extension of wind turbines, radar wind measurement technology, wind farm micro-siting in a place with complex terrain, etc. In recent years, more and more Chinese enterprises and institutions have actively participated in the formulation of international standards and the qualification assessment systems, which have profound influences:
First, by participating in the standards and certification systems, we can promote the exchange among peers in the wind power industry and boost international cooperation in standardization and related issues. Joint efforts can be made to promote the globalization of technical standards, tests, and certifications in the wind power industry.
Second, China's rules and demands can be reflected in the formulation of international rules and we can contribute "Chinese Power" to the development of the world's renewable energy industry.
Third, it provides support for mutual recognition between China's testing and certification agencies and international institutions and enhances the global influence of China's entire wind power industry.
It is worth mentioning that in May 2019, Pan Weiping, an expert from the Chief Engineer Office of Goldwind's R&D Center, was elected as the vice-chairman of IECRE Wind Energy Operational Management Committee (WE-OMC), which indicates that China's progress and achievements in the field of mutual recognition of international standards for renewable energy have been further recognized by the world.
