Summary / Abstract:

jointly organised with SolarPower Europe and GET.invest – a European programme supported by the European Union, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria


Building on the work around the African editions of the O&M and EPC Best Practice Guidelines, SolarPower Europe, in collaboration with GET.invest – a European programme supported by the European Union, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria, will bring together African and European solar PV quality experts to discuss challenges and solutions for solar PV quality assurance and quality management in Sub-Saharan Africa. The session will explore the differences between quality assurance and management in Europe and in Africa, looking at vertically integrated and specialist firms in this field. Following this, the discussion will explore quality management at both the utility scale and for C&I systems, giving an idea of the challenges and governance of these two areas.
