Manufacturing practice assessment for PV pannels in Europe


Country:  France
Period:  2013


Sillia Energie, the French solar module producer based in France trusted 3E to act as an independent technical advisor and evaluate the technical suitability of their solar panels for grid-connected PV projects in EU. Modules under this assessment were Mono-crystalline and Multi-crystalline silicon modules. The assignment consisted on an integrated approach of quality evaluation in investigating the critical factors relevant to the technical acceptability of the selected PV modules and the specific parameters and criteria directly relevant to their performance and quality of the module by means of a technical evaluation based on a pre-defined list of documents and a plant visit and inspection to verify the manufacturing practices.
