Topic:Quality Assurance in PV Power Plant Projects in Asia

TÜV Rheinland has been assessing more than 24 GW PV Power Plants globally and has gained substantial experience in various countries in Asia. Especially in emerging markets the same mistakes are being made repetitively, which present a risk to stable performance of PV systems. This cannot only lead to the decrease of the project margin, but also be threat to the safety to buildings and human beings. TÜV Rheinland will show examples from projects in Asia and present a methodology of how to mitigate risks in various stages of project execution.
