Named ‘Quality for Photovoltaics’, the event aims to open dialogue between the solar industry’s various stakeholders on the issue and will take place in Berlin on 6 September 2012.
The organisers say the strength of this event will lie in its balanced consideration of the different perspectives of all those involved. After a presentation on the status quo for quality assurance in photovoltaic projects, the issues involved in the various stages of project implementations will be brought under the spotlight.
Project engineers, representatives from banks, manufacturers and system builders will talk about their experiences. In this context, the bank representatives will explain what they need to see in terms of quality standards and assurances for the financing of PV projects. Certifications, warranty models and tests are other topics that the conference will address.
Between 100 and 150 participants are expected. These will include those from module manufacturers, suppliers, system integrators, distributors, project developers and designers as well as representatives from installation companies, banks, insurers, law firms, consultancies and testing laboratories. The conference language will be German with simultaneous translation into English.
