RETC PV Module Index (PVMI) Awards

The Renewable Energy Test Centre (RETC), a highly- accredited member of the VDE group, is hosting their PV Module Index Awards during this years SNEC Exhibition.

The PV Module Index (PVMI) report is an annual initiative by RETC that compiles reliability, performance, and quality indices in collaboration with leading PV module manufacturers. The report focuses on creating a free and accessible report for all, offering specific, data-backed findings, reporting noteworthy performance and trends, and objectively highlighting the achievements of PV manufacturers.

The goal of the PVMI report is not to dictate module selection criteria but to empower stakeholders to identify, quantify, and mitigate technical risks related to specific applications. To be considered one of the "highest achievers," a manufacturer must demonstrate high quality, reliability, and performance in all aspects​.

Date:  Friday, 14 June 2024

Venue: The QUBE Hotel Shanghai Hongqiao

Time:  17:30
*Please note the Awards Event is by invitation only
