List of Accredited International Grid Codes, Standards and Procedures

Our experience and understanding of global grid code helps ensure that power is safely transmitted into the grid.

Our renewable energy grid experts are committee members of the FGW (Fördergesellschaft Windenergie und andere Dezentrale Energien),  UL3001 and IECRE. Our participation in this organization along with our extensive experience helps ensure that our team develops high quality solutions based on the most current technical guidelines for testing, validation and certification.

We provide certification of decentralized power generating unit based on the technical regulations for low voltage (VDE-AR-N 4105), medium voltage (VDE-AR-N 4110), high voltage (VDE-AR-N 4120) and extra high voltage (VDE-AR-N 4130) after notification of the European Union.

Our expertise cover the evaluation, certification and inspection of:

  • Windturbines
  • Photovoltaic
  • Combustion Engines
  • Storage systems
  • PGS Controller
  • Conventionell PGU
  • Innovations
  • Hybrid Power Systems

Our evaluation can be based on the following basis certification schemes:

  • FGW Technical Guideline 8
  • FGW Technical Guideline 4
  • IEC61400-22 Conformity testing and certification
  • DEWI GCC Process 37-GC-P0853
