Subsidy-free PV: Transforming the energy landscape

For the economics of a subsidy free solar array to pencil out, component and system quality is a key concern. But with razor-thin margins, how can quality be assured? The Quality Roundtable will examine both the importance of quality assurance on subsidy free PV projects, along with technological case studies.

As cost pressure favours also new technologies and components, one of the issues will be quality assurance with innovations, including modern glass-glass modules.

The Quality Roundtable will examine key issues affecting PV quality, including best practices in installation; PID, microcracks, and other module issues; contact clarity; and much more – taking real case studies from operational projects as examples.

A lively discussion of new ‘quality cases’ is assured!

In previous years the Quality Roundtable has exceeded capacity, so secure your place today and be amongst the quality leaders, experts and peers!

Program Highlights:

Quality Case Study: Field examples of issues with glass-glass modules

Deep diving into a detailed exploration of glass-glass modules performance, discussing potential issues with this innovation, as well as identifying under which conditions glass-glass modules could be positive for LCOE, whilst ensuring quality assurance.

Quality Case Study: Inverter failures in the field analysis

A detailed examination of the key inverter failure issues that can significantly impact the success of an investment, including inverter fault detection, installation, overheating, service and repair.

Quality Case Study: Examining cable connector connections in the field

Through analysing cable connector connection failures from operational projects, discussion will identify possible solutions, where the importance of robust quality assurance comes into play.

Program features:

NEW: pv magazine Industry SnapShot Poll!

As valued PV community members, share your thoughts and insights on the 4 big questions facing the industry.  Results of the poll will be revealed at the end of the session, with lively discussion around what was expected as well as any surprises!
