Committees

Growth needs standards. The compatibility of components within the electrical grid, the connection to the grid, legal certainty for both providers and policy-makers: worldwide, experts engage in recognised professional bodies to establish common guidelines and standards. We want things to move forward. Working actively in all major harmonization and standardization bodies as well as international research projects, we don’t just work according to standards – we set them.
