Top-Performing PV Modules: The 2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard Webinars

The PV Module Reliability Scorecard, now in its 6th edition, ranks commercially available PV modules by their performance in PV Evolution Labs’ Product Qualification Program (PQP), a comprehensive, rigorous test regime that assesses reliability and performance of PV modules. The 2020 rankings will be released on live webinars.

Webinar content:

  • Analysis of the 2020 PVEL PQP participants’ results in extended reliability and performance tests and rankings of Top Performers

  • Overview of the failures observed in PVEL’s PQP across different PV module and cell designs

  • Introduction to best practices for leveraging independent test data to assess PV module suppliers objectively and mitigate procurement risk

  • Insights into how IEs use independent test data for solar project due diligence
