The GWO China Committee was established in February 2017 and is responsible for introducing GWO standards to China.
The committee meets twice annually and is attended by current members, in particular major manufacturers and operators from the region such as GoldWind, Envision Energy, Shanghai Electric, GE and Vestas. In addition, other Chinese stakeholders such as China General Certification engage with the committee on a regular basis.
