Standards Development

Industry Services

ACP is an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) 美国可再生能源标准认可标准发展组织.

Standards play an important role in everyday life.

Developing consensus renewable energy standards in the United States.

ACP is an ANSI accredited standards development organization for consensus renewable energy standards in the United States. Standards play an important role in everyday life. They may establish size or shape or capacity of a product, process or system. They can specify performance of products or personnel. 他们还可以定义术语,这样使用标准的人就不会产生误解.

Standards Development Committees

As the Secretariat, ACP通过ACP共识机构(委员会)管理ANSI标准过程,这些机构为可再生能源行业制定和维护自愿的国家共识标准, 确保标准的修订过程是及时的,并符合ANSI基本要求程序, and publishes the final product of the consensus process.

On January 7, ACP通知ANSI并提交了美国风能协会(AWEA)标准认证的转让申请, with an expanded scope. 2月16日,ANSI执行标准委员会(ExSC)批准了ACP的申请. ANSI published the scope in their Standards Action publication on March 5, for a 30-day public comment. ACP’s Standards Development Procedures are effective April 28, 2021.

Under ACP’s Standards Development Procedures, three different types of standards may be developed:

  • Standards: documents with mandatory requirements
  • 推荐实践:文件中程序和位置代表良好实践
  • 技术报告:文件中描述和建议了实现良好实践的替代方法,但没有提出明确的建议
