Interview: Investigating Module Performance in a Service Environment
Alex Bradley is a principal investigator for DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, studying material reliability in service environments over time. He obtained a PhD in chemistry from the University of New Hampshire in 1997 and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Council on Science and Technology at Princeton University before joining DuPont in 2001. Dr. Bradley is an industry representative on the Standards Technical Panel for UL 1703, the equipment safety standard for flat-plate PV modules and panels, and serves as the American Chemistry Council’s alternate representative on the National Electrical Code–Making Panel No. 4 regarding PV installation, the panel responsible for NEC Articles 690 and 705.
At Solar Power International 2012, Bradley moderated a panel called “Standardization of Codes for Solar Project Development.” SolarPro staff met with him afterward at the DuPont booth on the floor of the Orlando Convention Center.
