Testing, standardisation and certification

Standardisation is largely achieved through the IEC 61400 series of standards specifically for the wind industry, and their national or European equivalents.  Standardisation work is driven by industry requirements, but requires consensus, and therefore takes considerable time.  A process of gradual change and development is expected, rather than any radical changes.

Testing of major components, such as blades, is expected to develop, driven both by standards and by manufacturers.

Certification of turbine designs by independent bodies is now well established.
