Description

There are no standards available today that can quickly assess the quality/durability of solar panels. Is the design durable for the intended application? Are the modules consistently manufactured and could variations in the material composition or manufacturing processes result in premature failure of some fraction of the modules? Join PV module QA experts from the International Photovoltaic (PV) Module Quality Assurance (QA) Task Force as they share their activities to date towards developing these standards.
