GWO standards are created by the industry, for the industry. Our members are globally leading turbine manufacturers and owners, representing a majority of installed wind energy capacity around the world. Together, they share risk information and expertise to create training standards that improve safety and build a competent workforce.
Eight out of ten members agree GWO has raised safety training standards across the industry
GWO technicians are available for up to 6 days more each year than staff trained outside the GWO framework agreement
¾ of GWO members have standardized 30% or more of their entry level training
More than 445 training providers are certified to deliver GWO training in over 45 countries
GWO has become a contractual expectation up and down the supply chain
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a two-year partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition. The wind energy industry is a major opportunity for countries to create high-skilled, local jobs to boost economic growth and reach their Paris Agreement goals.
