Summary

In future, new methodologies will be introduced to assess technical risks and mitigation measures in terms of economic impact and effectiveness during operation. These processes will place particular emphasis on providing information on available inspection methods and best practice to qualify PV modules in the field. The presentations in session 9 will also cover the outcomes of the work carried out by IEA PVPS Task 13 experts to provide best practices for O&M guidelines in different climates as well as technical risks quantification for PV power plants. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and IEA PVPS Task 13.
