IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Partners With SEMI for a Photovoltaic Standards Workshop at SOLARCON India 2013

Time: 8/7/2013 11:09:42 AM                       Publisher: Staff
Day Workshop to Have Extensive Deliberations on Standards for Renewable Energy and Micro Grids
IEEE-Standards Association (IEEE-SA), a globally recognized standards-setting body within IEEE, is partnering with SEMI for a day workshop on the 2nd of August as part of SOLARCON India 2013. The workshop titled 'PV Standards-from materials and manufacturing to systems' will see leading industry practitioners and testing/certification firms sharing latest updates on the most relevant aspects of standards for PV. There will also be discussions on global standards development activities, standards needs specific to India and the need for greater participation by Indian firms in global standards development. For registration, agenda and related details of the workshop, please visit http://www.solarconindia.org/node/1106
According to Bill Ash, Strategic Program Manager, IEEE-SA, "India is a significant market for renewable energy globally with solar/PV as a key component. It is also a market where cutting-edge innovation is happening. This workshop provides a platform for us to interact with industry leaders and researchers here and understand the local needs better, to make our standards' solutions more relevant to local needs. An aspect of particular significance considering some of the issues faced with the grid in India is fairly unique."
Added Bettina Weiss, President, SEMI India, "We are delighted to partner IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) and IEC for this workshop at SOLARCON India 2013 on a topic of great relevance. With rapid growth in installations in India, and with components being sourced from across the world, installers, developers and end users have a direct stake in quality, reliability and performance standards, best practices for reliable installations, component benchmarks and field-performance indicators. Similar issues are important across the PV value chain. SEMI's International Standards Program focuses on manufacturing standards that enable companies to reduce costs, align technology roadmaps, ensure connectivity & compatibility besides driving positive growth and economic benefit."
About SOLARCON India 2013:
SOLARCON India, now in its fifth year, is the event of choice for the solar industry in India. It brings together the entire supply chain with a focus on PV manufacturing, production and technology and attracts equipment and materials suppliers; cell and module manufacturers; balance of systems (BOS) suppliers (inverters, batteries, tracking and mounting systems, integrators); project developers; academia and researchers; utility-scale developers and government agencies. SOLARCON India visitors are influential: on average, 88.5% of visitors are involved in the evaluation, recommendation, and final purchasing of PV manufacturing materials, equipment, and services and 81% of visitors are management level or above providing an excellent platform for product announcements and launches via exhibition presence or sponsorships with over 5000 focused visitors expected at the event.
