TC 88 - Wind energy generation systems has existed for 30 years, and grid connection-related standards have existed for 20 years. These standards played a major role in the growth of the wind industry, going from small single wind turbines to large power plants, ensuring reliable and high quality products in an international market. The journey of the grid connection standards is still in its early stages, and there is an urgent need to continue the development and harmonization of the standardrelated activities to support a fast, reliable and stable development of the future energy system. The paper presents the journey of the development of grid connection-related standards as well as their current status, usage and relation to other grid connection requirements. The paper will present different perspectives from the main stakeholders as well as predicted future needs.
