Tailored quality criteria for specific requirements

With short product cycles and changing components, battery and energy storage technologies are developing constantly and rapidly. International standards exist and attempt to adapt to the moving market situation, but very often they cannot keep up with the market.

Over the last years, VDE Renewables has developed the VDE Quality Pyramid for renewable energies. Our overarching goal here is to achieve a significant reduction of risks for all involved stakeholders.

  • Existing national and international standards for electrical and functional safety form an important basis.
  • Together with numerous market participants from industry, market supervisory authorities, the financial and insurance sectors, additional quality criteria are developed to close existing gaps in the standards and contain important criteria for safety, risk minimization, performance and service life.
  • For companies with more stringent requirements for their products and services, we can offer additional tailored solutions that can meet individual needs. We work directly with customers to develop their quality criteria and processes, and we verify these using our background as neutral quality assurance experts.
