The leadership of a new Executive Committee (ExCo) of Global Wind Organisation has today been formed. The committee oversees all work carried out by the Secretariat.
At its first General Assembly under new Articles of Association agreed in February 2019, the GWO Executive Committee (ExCo) has been formed.
The new committee leadership is as follows:
Eloy Jauregui, Chairman of GWO, said: "GWO standards are created by the industry for the industry. We are pleased that our new statutes under the 2019 Articles of Association have produced a successful result following the General Assembly. This signals our progress towards maturity as an organisation and will help GWO become truly global."
Eloy also made special mention to Sabas Herranz, who steps down from his role as Chair of the Audit & Compliance Committee. "GWO would like to put on record its thanks to the outgoing chair of the Audit & Compliance Committee, Sabas Herranz of GE Renewable Energy. Sabas has been instrumental in our work to create a cycle of continuous improvement in relation to governance of the GWO training provider network and certification criteria."
We will be shutting down WINDA for a complete reboot on Friday December 13 at 14:00. WINDA will be in read only mode through Sunday but may have stability issues due to the migration and may provide unexpected error notifications.
GWO has migrated WINDA from a Django/Python solution hosted on Amazon Web Services to a solution based on Microsoft Azure.
GWO members say the value created by WINDA for safety and workforce productivity far outweigh the costs of the system
The GWO Criteria for Training Providers and Certification Bodies provide the framework and governance system around which more than 350 training providers can operate.
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition.
