Standardizing Solar Performance Metrics

In every industry, establishing best practices, standards and metrics is the key to accelerating growth. The solar industry is no exception. The conversation around establishing standards for performance metrics in the solar industry is heating up—specifically around the concept of measuring the cost-per-kilowatt-hour—and we invite you to get involved in the discussion.

We are excited to be involved in the upcoming SolarTech Performance Symposium, an event taking place on Monday, July 13 at the Intersolar conference in San Francisco that is dedicated to providing a forum for everyone interested in the solar industry to have their voice heard regarding standards. This interactive discussion will enable solar manufacturers, testing and certification organizations, service providers, the financial community and solar consumers to join in on what promises to be a lively conversation on the standards that will move this industry forward.

Featured participants at this event include: Dr. Charlie Gay, President of Applied Solar (an Applied Materials business unit); Matt Campbell of SunPower Corporation; David Williams of Renewable Ventures, a Fotowatio company; Dr. Leo Casey Satcon Corporation; and Bob Schmitt of SMA America.

By bringing together thought leaders from throughout the solar supply chain, this symposium will serve as a spring board for the rapid evolution and standardization of performance metrics that will enable purchase decisions based on objective financial criteria. The principle objective of the session is to leverage the experience and expertise from a large multidisciplinary audience to collaboratively identify performance-related challenges and propose best practices and methodologies for the PV industry.

There is a great line-up of industry thought leaders speaking at the event, and for a complete list you can visit the Intersolar site by clicking here. We invite you to join us at the SolarTech Performance Symposium event on Monday, July 13, and we believe that it’s going to be a very lively and productive discussion.
