PV Module Reliability Scorecard 2021

Characterized by steady growth, the solar industry has celebrated several successes within the last 10 years. According to Jenya Meydbray, CEO of PV Evolution Labs (PVEL), global production has  increased twenty-fold. While 20 gigawatts were recorded in 2010, the figure is already around  400 gigawatts today. In this article, we take a closer look at the challenges that such growth  can bring. To counteract problems and create solutions, PVEL has created a Product Qualification Program (PQP), which produces a scorecard of the best-performing …
