Photovoltaics Quality Briefing 2010

Start Date:04 Oct 10 End Date:05 Oct 10

Investing in solar PV – whatever the scale – is not a cheap business, and so it's important to know that the system will offer many years of good performance. In many markets, including the UK with its recently introduced feed-in tariffs, householders, building developers, the investment community and others are planning to make substantial investments in photovoltaic installations. Meanwhile the growing market has drawn in a huge number of equipment manufacturers and suppliers.

How can buyers and installers choose with confidence? If lack of information and transparency at the purchasing stage means that poor quality equipment is chosen, the system may under-perform and the investment may lose value. And how can a system owner or investor ensure that a system will keep on functioning optimally in 10 or 15 years' time?

Key benefits of attending

Participants of this event shall increase their knowledge of PV quality, prevent malinvestment, safeguard their companies against potential losses of millions in purchasing, financing and shareholder investment, and protect themselves against third-party liability. They will find answers to most significant questions, including:

What mistakes can be avoided during the planning stages?
What are typical errors when building and operating PV installations?
What are the potential pitfalls in module selection?
How should performance specifications be understood?
Who is responsible for the damage when components fail and jam an entire system?
What should be considered when importing components?
What testing procedures can be used and what does it cost?
How do you evaluate the validity of certificates and what do they say about everyday operation and long-term performance?
How important are seemingly small parts like cables and connectors?
