Simulation Calculation and Analysis
The wind energy simulation center has a high-performance simulation platform which is equipped with mainstream analysis software in the industry，such as Bladed，RomaxWind、Ansys、Bentley SACS，Meteodyn WTFocus、OpenWind、 DHI MIKE and so on. It can do all kinds of load simulation and strength analysis of structural components for onshore and offshore wind turbines, as well as components such as blades, gearboxes, generators, and offshore support structures. strength analysis. At the same time, it can analyze and optimize the flow field of wind farms to maximize the benefits of wind farms under the premise of ensuring safety.
CGC owns over 20 laboratories and 100 cooperative laboratories including the world's largest full-scale blade testing laboratory, the Peony wind test site, the East China Photovoltaic Testing Center with full testing capabilities of IEC series standards for components, outdoor photovoltaic products demonstration base and system testing capabilities for urban rail vehicle system, public works system, communication signal and power supply. Through the verification and accumulation of experiments and project practice, the professional technical level and core business capabilities are continuously improved to provide basic support for the technological progress of the industry.
Highly trained technicians and advanced portable equipment
CGC test lab, equipped with advanced testing equipment and a group of high-level test engineers, the competence areas cover wind turbine power performance, mechanical loads, electric characteristics, acoustic noise, lidar verification. CGC test lab owns a Mudan testing wind farm and performed standardized procedures of test projects.
Standards are the foundation of testing and certification, so CGC has always attached great importance to and participated in the standards formulation. Which include over 80% of wind power standards by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and dozens of national and industry standards. CGC has also provided a large number of standardized technical services for wind power related enterprises. The standards involved the wind turbines to components, from design to manufacture, from equipment to wind farms, covering the entire field and the whole lifecycle.
Research and Publications
CGC has always focused on industrial economy, technology, and policy research, gathering industry experts' perspectives, deeply analyzing global industrial development trends, publishing professional works, sharing research results, and disseminating cutting-edge perspectives and knowledge.

20+ Working Groups--The MOST Active Participant in Chinese Renewable Energy Industry
CGC is an important participant in the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications (IECRE). In 2017, GCC became the first IECRE accredited certification body, inspection body and testing laboratory outside Europe, which contributes to the globalization of China’s renewable energy equipment.
From the preparation of IECRE system to the establishment of the system, CGC is the only institution in China that participates in the whole process. From 2011 to mid-2014, at WT CAC and IECRE forum meetings, CGC actively contributed to the establishment of certification and testing global mutual recognition system in renewable energy field, and promoted the development of the international mutual recognition process.
Since the establishment of IECRE in 2014, under the organization of CNCA, CGC has participated in the IECRE Management Committee meetings and relevant working groups meetings. Representatives of CGC actively express their industry views when attending IECRE working group meetings, and participate in discussions and make suggestions on process design, rules development, financial model, system development and many other aspects. For major issues, CGC, as the secretariat, assists CNCA in organizing domestic industry institutions to have discussion and submit formal proposals to the IECRE secretariat.
CGC's in-depth participation has been unanimously recognized by IECRE and international peers. At the REMC meeting in September 2015, under the recommendation of CNCA, Qin Haiyan of CGC was elected as the Vice Chairman of IECRE, and was successfully re-elected at the REMC meeting in November 2018. This is the first time that China has gained management position at the beginning of the establishment of the IEC conformity assessment system.
We integrate social responsibility with development strategy and management activities. We take "providing solutions for industry progress and promoting sustainable development of the society" as our mission and always adhere to impartiality, objectivity, science, standardization, integrity” in daily operation. We believe that as a part of National Quality Infrastructure, we will lay a solid foundation for the high-quality development of the industry and play an important role in jointly building a more sustainable future.
