Fraunhofer ISE and ISAAC organize the workshop "PV-Module Reliabilty" in the framework of the EU-FP7 project SOPHIA in Lugano, Switzerland as part of the 30th anniversary of the PV activities at SUPSI.
Type approval testing of PV modules according to IEC 61215 is a qualification test procedure based on assumptions resulting from the experience with modules of the first generation.
The market and variety of commercially available modules have grown rapidly during the past years. Manufacturers and investors more and more recognize the lack of appropriate durability assessment procedures or even service life estimation methods.
The workshop should serve as a European platform for the discussion of the main topics of durability testing and collection of the big European experience with production and operation of PV modules in Europe.
