Photovoltaics is one of the pillars of renewable energy production. TÜV Rheinland can support manufacturers and service providers by testing the quality of their PV modules, PV components, and PV systems. TÜV Rheinland’s new Solar Energy Assessment Center in Cologne has been in operation since June 2009. With optimized process flows and state-of-the-art testing and simulation facilities, the 2,000-square-meter center is one of the world’s leading test laboratories.

Qualification of Manufacturers and Service Providers
We test your standardized PV systems and PV components – including PV modules, grid-connected systems, power inverters, frames, cables, and connectors – according to national and international standards. If no applicable standards exist, our experts can carry out tests based on TÜV Rheinland specifications.
TÜV Rheinland’s PV laboratory is accredited in compliance with the DIN/EN/ISO/IEC 17025 norm and listed as a certification test laboratory by the worldwide certification system of the IECEE in the photovoltaics category. In addition, TÜV Rheinland LGA Products GmbH has been qualified as a national certification body.
In addition to laboratory testing, certification of PV modules and PV components also covers the manufacturing facilities.
In our accredited laboratory, we test selected samples to determine whether your products satisfy applicable standards. The test criteria – transparent at all times to customers – are documented along with the test results.
Our experts carry out additional periodic quality and product audits at your production facilities. That way, we can ensure that all PV modules are manufactured with the same materials and processes as the samples tested in the laboratory and that product quality is consistent.
We deliver precise, impartial and technically superior services for investors, manufacturers and operators in the energy industry.
