PV Reliability Workshop
This workshop is planned in partnership with Sandia National Laboratories and Brookhaven National Laboratory.
NREL hosts an annual Photovoltaic Reliability Workshop (PVRW) so solar technology experts can engage on current and forward-thinking subject matter in PV reliability.
This workshop provides a unique opportunity for group discussions that can yield answers and bring participants to a common understanding for current questions in module and system reliability. Improvements in PV reliability reduce the cost of solar electricity and promote investor confidence in the technology—both critical goals for moving PV technologies deeper into the electricity marketplace.
The 2018 PVRW was Tuesday, Feb. 27, to Thursday, March 1, 2018, at the Lakewood Denver West Sheraton. These events are unique in the requirement that every organization share a presentation (oral or poster). Proceedings are available online.
