UL can extend the testing capability to solar PV manufacturers whenever the BIS introduces it as a technical regulation and upon receiving the necessary accreditation.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Suresh Sugavanam, Vice President and Managing Director of South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, UL, said: We are committed to investing in building the necessary testing infrastructure and skilling of manpower to meet the ever-growing needs of the renewable energy industry.

The new solar PV laboratory is a testament to this commitment as we look forward to supporting the industry with more resources in the short to long-term and contributing towards making it self-reliant. The laboratory will be part of our global network of state-of-the-art testing facilities that UL offers to its clients worldwide.

Talking about the solar PV industry’s growth and its emerging needs, Dr. Chakradhar Byreddy, Director for Renewables in Asia Pacific for UL, said: The solar PV module industry has grown quickly in the last few years attracting investments and leading to mushrooming of technologies. Companies such as UL have a role in complementing BIS’s efforts in building the necessary testing capacity to support the rapid growth of the industry.

UL’s new laboratory is one such step to ramp up the capacity to test latest PV module technologies, reduce the time frame for testing and enable faster time-to-market for manufacturers by using digital twins and reference module requirements for new PV technologies. More importantly, as it is a modular laboratory, it can be expanded further according to the demand.

Sharing their views on the launch, Mr. Vishanth Venkatesh, Head Product Management, Solar-Manufacturing, Adani Solar, said: UL has been a trusted partner for us in our journey in becoming one of the top 15 solar manufacturers in the world.

The end-to-end services they provide in testing, certification and advisory domains and the global renewable energy industry expertise they offer made it an easy choice for us to partner with them.
