EPIA WEBINAR: Quality Assurance for Rooftop Solar Systems

DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions Sponsored EPIA Webinar on Quality Assurance for Rooftop Solar Systems

This webinar was hosted and moderated by the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) and was sponsored by DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions.

William Gambogi, Research Fellow at DuPont and Diplom-Ingenieur Florian Reil, Business Field Manager for Solar Energy at TÜV Rheinland, discussed risk mitigation strategies for rooftop photovoltaic (PV) systems that industry stakeholders can implement to help improve the overall lifetime and return on investment of their solar system.

Discussion topics included:

  • Critical differences between roof and ground-mounted PV installations
  • Results from the DuPont global field survey, laboratory tests and recommendations for materials selection
  • Types and occurrences of the main failures observed in rooftop PV systems, including flammability, electrical insulation, partially induced degradation (PID) and hot spots.
  • Global standardization efforts, including initiatives being undertaken to define and reinforce the relevant quality assurance standards for rooftop PV.
