FGW committees


The main task of FGW is the development and publication of Technical Guidelines TG for Wind Turbines. The content of the Technical Guidelines is constantly revised by a respective technical committee based on state-of-the-art technology. There are currently seven different technical committees (TC) that work on different areas and Technical Guidelines.

The technical committees are further divided into working groups and consist of a balanced number of representatives from all relevant stakeholders. The members of the technical committees are generally also members of FGW. Each technical committee is represented to externals by a chairman.
