Top-Performing PV Modules: 2021 PVEL Scorecard

About this event

Note: Two webinars will be held to accommodate international time zones. Use the dropdown menu above to select a time.

Just five years ago, the global solar market barely reached 70 GW. This year it may top 200 GW. To meet demand, manufacturers must produce over 1.5 million PV modules every single day, and they are opening new factories all over the world. Simultaneously, PV technology is steadily advancing. From novel cell designs to large-format modules, today’s buyers have more options than ever before.

What do these new factories and products mean for quality, reliability and performance? How can solar developers, asset owners and investors avoid risk when they invest in the latest technologies?

PVEL’s PV Module Reliability Scorecard, now in its 7th edition, helps downstream PV module buyers and investors evaluate products in the context of today’s rapidly evolving solar market. It ranks commercially available PV modules via its Qualification Program (PQP), a comprehensive, rigorous test regime that assesses reliability and performance.

The 2021 rankings will be released during this live webinar and will be available in a new digital format.

Tara Doyle and Tristan Erion-Lorico from PVEL will share this year’s top-performing modules and discuss key findings from the PQP testing.

Join us to find out which new Top Performer category can affect project value by more than $100,000 – and which test resulted in >20% degradation.

Webinar content:

  • Analysis of the PV modules subjected to extended reliability and performance tests in PVEL’s PQP
  • Overview of the failures observed in PVEL’s PQP and their implications for field performance
  • Introduction to best practices for risk mitigation during procurement
