Setting policies promoting renewable energy as a serious contender in the energy market and ensuring the safety and quality of evolving technologies can overwhelm policymakers. Local, regional and federal governments often lack the expertise necessary to support the development of effective energy policy addressing production, distribution, consumption, conservation and efficiency. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) tackling energy-related issues are able to influence authorities by producing practical results through programs and projects as well as providing realistic examples. NGOs looking to influence policy frequently retain assistance from professionals experienced in generating energy policy. International bodies responsible for writing regulations, standards and guidelines also rely on consultants experienced in the development of diverse energy policies.
Solar energy is one of the most popular and accepted renewable alternatives. When developing solar energy policy, governments, NGOs and international bodies depend on energy policy consulting to provide advice on procedures and technology implementation measures. Our consulting services help officials shape and invoke efficient solar energy policies, procedures and standards which promote the adaptation of solar energy conversion technologies to benefit individuals as well as society.
TÜV Rheinland experts sit on German, European and international standardization committees. We work with local governmental institutions in many regions providing advice and research support. Together with the international electro technical commission (IEC) for certification to standards relating to equipment for use in renewable energy applications, we design and adapt unified procedures and standards across the world.
Our energy policy consulting services provide you:
Extensive knowledge of photovoltaic (PV) solar technology and unparalleled experience in applied solar energy conversion provide us a deep understanding of the entire solar energy value chain, from materials and module production to PV plants and electric network connection issues. We have helped to reduce inherent financial and technological risks across multiple economies.
With numerous government-sponsored projects ongoing around the world, our experts work with local organizations such as national renewable energy laboratory USA (NREL USA), ministry of economy, trade and industry Japan (METI Japan) and the federal ministry for economic affairs and energy Germany (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie - BMWi Germany).
We continue to work to integrate the great potential of solar energy in the overall mix to provide an affordable, efficient and environmentally-friendly source of energy. Energy policies developed to promote solar power as an accepted and respected alternative lower greenhouse gas emissions and ensure a sustainable energy source to positively impact the quality of human life and protect the planet. TÜV Rheinland experts can assist you in developing efficient solar energy policy appropriate for your region, terrain and people.
