Goldwind has participated in the initiation of IEC international standards for a long time. Besides being a participant in the setting of two international standards — IEC TS62898-1 and IEC TS62898- 2, Goldwind took the lead in drafting the microgrid-related standard discussed at the meeting, which would fill the gap in the international standardization for microgrids and help in systematization of the planning, operation, protection and control of microgrids. The meeting showed that China's microgrid research outcomes have received global recognition and attention, and the country has grown from a follower to a leader in the sector once dominated by European and American nations. China has also gained a greater say in power generation with New Energy, thereby contributing to the greater success of Goldwind or even the country in microgrids worldwide.
