Intertek certified by IECEE to issue IEC CB reports for CPV modules

Intertek’s Lake Forest, California laboratory has been designated as a certified body testing laboratory for IEC 62108 with the company receiving accreditation by the IECEE to issue IEC Certification Body (CB) reports for CPV modules to IEC the standard. The certification enables Intertek to provide CPV manufacturers with a CB certification and test reports, which, it notes, can be used to obtain global certifications with IECEE member countries and participating certification bodies on top of receiving North American certification.

“More than ever, the CPV market is experiencing technological advancements and market growth and manufacturers must move quickly to continue to drive down the cost of the CPV system and compete with more traditional PV modules,” said Sunny Rai, regional vice president of renewable energy at Intertek. “As an experienced CPV testing and certification agency, we work with some of the leading CPV manufacturers who are dedicated to meeting industry standards and requirements. We are pleased to now offer our clients a CB test report for IEC 62108, helping to drive acceptance of their products in this growing market.”

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
