Improving PV Module Test Standards

Improving Industry Standards For PV Module Testing

DuPont is helping lead the industry call to adopt new standards for PV module testing to help reduce solar panel degradation and backsheet failures.

The global demand for solar energy is surging, and to keep up with growth, the reliability of PV module installations must be preserved. Unfortunately, defects of solar panels in the field , stemming from the use of non field-proven materials, are not uncommon, even among systems in use less than five years.

Read more to learn about PV module failures, their impact, and how DuPont is helping the industry overcome these issues through a focus on better materials and a new standard of testing.

"With over 40 years of PV experience, we have developed and refined sequential testing and long-term reliability - we urge the industry to adopt similar improved testing standards."
