General Information

Note: Registration is NOT yet open for the 2022 Photovoltaic Reliability Workshop.

The 2022 Photovoltaic Reliability Workshop (PVRW) will be held Monday, 21 February 2022 through Friday, 25 February 2022, in a virtual conference hall setting.

Registration is open until midnight of Monday, 7 February 2022. Registration may close earlier if the workshop is full.

The PVRW provides a unique opportunity for group discussions that can yield answers and bring participants to a common understanding for current questions in module and system reliability. Improvements in PV reliability reduce the cost of solar energy and promote investor confidence in the technology—both critical goals for advancing PV technologies in the electricity marketplace. 

Though this year’s workshop will be held virtually, it continues in the tradition of engaged attendees. 

  • Attendance requires participation—either an oral or poster presentation—by each organization. Each presenting author may host one non-presenting guest. Non-presenting guests will be asked for their host’s name during the registration process.
  • The workshop will include its regular plenary sessions and interactive poster sessions, as well as a lobby in which attendees can easily move between small group discussions.
  • Attendees often utilize the workshop to facilitate meetings for various collaborative activities. In past years, these activities have included meetings of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to Technical Committee 82, specific PV standards projects, PVQAT task group meetings, DuraMAT projects, industry roundtables, and tours. If you would like to arrange a virtual side meeting for your group at PVRW, please contact pvrw.admin@nrel.gov after completing the registration process.
