Reliability and Circularity

The working group focusses on the quality and in particular the reliability of PV components and systems.

We promote a holistic view on the influence of quality on the overall cost of PV electricity. Our objective is to increase the awareness for a comprehensive quality consideration starting in material and component production and covering all phases of a PV project down to operation and final dismantling. We want to identify the need for action required to safely satisfy demanding quality expectations of sustainable investments..
