Workshop on International Standards Related to Solar PV Power Generation

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is witnessing major growth of solar PV installation. With this growth, it is crucial for managerial and technical personnel in charge of solar PV projects to have adequate understanding of the numerous international standards and the practice of standardization related to solar PV.

In this workshop Mr. Liang Ji, a world-renowned expert in solar PV standards and a member to many of standardization committees, will give a one-day short course on the various current and proposed standards established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) that are related to solar photovoltaics. He will describe the background and the technical significance of these standards, how they are applied in the various stages of solar PV projects, the standardization workflow, and some unique aspects of the MENA region as pertinent to solar PV standardization.

This workshop will be valuable for professionals who are interested in solar PV projects from management, financial, or technical standpoints.
