The new standard first restricts the wind turbine manufacturing market to entities of a minimum production capacity of 2.5 MW. New wind turbine manufacturing companies should also demonstrate a five years experience in large-scale mechanical and electrical industry and establish a professional Research and Development Team.
Second, research and development on testing operations are limited to companies with design capacities while wind turbines manufacturers should meet the requirements of the Wind power technology standards and apply the Environmental Impact Assessment law. Such regulations are applicable to grid-connected wind turbines generators and wind equipment manufacturing companies.
