PV standards are a topic of great interest and relevance, especially with rapid growth in installations, in India, and with components being sourced from across the world.  There is direct interest among installers, end users and developers in quality, reliability and performance standards, best practices for reliable installations, component benchmarks and field-performance indicators. 

This workshop will provide you the latest updates from leading standards bodies, practicing industry professionals and testing/certification agencies on the most relevant aspects of standards for PV.

There will also be discussion of global manufacturing standards development activities, standards needs specific to India and the need for greater participation by Indian manufacturers in standards development activity.

The workshop is suitable for PV manufacturing industry professionals, PV system integrators, PV plant developers, EPC organizations and others involved in the design and deployment of solar PV solutions.
