In 2002 WIND-consult became an associated member of MEASNET, the international organisation of wind energy measuring institutes. After successful participation in international round robin tests the fulfilment of the MEASNET quality criteria for the testing fields Loads, Acoustic Noise, Site Assessment and Power Performance was confirmed.
WIND-consult is a member of the Fördergesellschaft Windenergie e.V. (FGW) since 1991 and is active in the committee of experts for power curve, power quality, noise and wind potential & energy yields. Measurements of power curve and power quality on wind turbine generator systems are carried out by WIND-consult according to the conformity criteria of the FGW.
In May 2017 the conformity to work in the areas of power curve measurement, load measurement and anemometer calibration according to the rules and regulations of the IECRE system was confirmed by an IECRE assessment.
