Fraunhofer ISE CalLab PV Modules – First Accredited Calibration Laboratory for PV Modules with Measurement Uncertainty of 1.6%
Apr 24, 2015

Worldwide the installation of photovoltaic (PV) power plants is increasing rapidly, with 55 gigawatts of newly installed solar power expected in 2015. Testing and quality control on a high level are becoming more and more important for banks and investors. Fraunhofer ISE is keeping pace with this demand by recently achieving accreditation status for its PV module calibration laboratory, thus turning CalLab PV Modules into the first accredited lab with a measurement uncertainty of 1.6%. On March 24, 2015 the German accreditation body “Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH Dakks” confirmed the competence of CalLab PV Modules under the terms of DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 to carry out calibrations in the field of photovoltaics.
