The new service will allow asset owners to save time, reduce cost and minimise risk by enabling Flash test/I-V curve measurement and electroluminescence (EL) testing for their PV modules on-site, that would otherwise typically be conducted in a stationary laboratory. It will also provide cost effective post-delivery-pre-installation and post-installation quality assurance of PV modules.

Sending modules to a stationary laboratory is often time consuming, expensive, and involves transportation related risks. For greenfield projects, successful implementation of a PV module quality assurance program in the field can significantly reduce technology and investment risk by detecting manufacturing issues or transportation related damage when modules arrive at a site. For operating projects, on-site measurements can assist in determining the sources of module performance issues.

The On-site Solar Lab is a state-of-the-art mobile laboratory which can be transported to project sites anywhere in the country. It will also be India’s first mobile PV testing lab to use an advanced A+/A+/A rated LED flasher that can conduct tests with lab-grade accuracy. 

“We predict in our 2018 Energy Transition Outlook that primary energy consumption of solar PV in India will increase from 0 percent in 2016 to 24 percent by 2050” said Nicolas Renon, Executive Vice President, APAC, DNV GL – Energy. “The On-site Solar Lab will support the demands of the rapidly growing solar market, further empowering developers and financiers to identify secure solar investments and accelerate India’s energy transition.”
