PV Reliability Workshop

Duramat

This workshop is planned in partnership with the Durable Module Materials Consortium.

NREL hosts an annual Photovoltaic Reliability Workshop (PVRW) so solar technology experts can discuss current and future issues in PV reliability.

Longer-lasting PV systems make lower-cost solar electricity and have less impact on the environment, human health, and natural resources.

PVRW offers a combination of oral presentations, panel discussions with vigorous audience participation, and poster presentations. At our workshop, every attendee is a presenter or the sole guest of a presenter.

For the first time, some oral presentations at PVRW 2023 will also be selected from open submissions. To apply to be selected for an oral presentation, email a 200-word plain-text abstract to pvrw.admin@nrel.gov. The closing date for open oral submissions is Friday, Oct. 28, 2022.

PVRW 2023 will be held in person at the Sheraton Denver West Hotel, 360 Union Boulevard, Lakewood, Colorado 80228 from Tuesday, Feb. 28 to Thursday, March 2, 2023.

Registration will open in early November 2022.
