NREL hosts an annual Photovoltaic Reliability Workshop (PVRW) so that solar technology experts can discuss current and future issues in PV reliability. Longer-lasting PV systems make lower-cost solar electricity and have less impact on the environment, human health, and natural resources.

PVRW offers a combination of oral presentations, panel discussions with vigorous audience participation, and poster presentations. Because we emphasize participation, most attendees present a poster or talk. See past proceedings. Each presenter is also allowed to host one non-presenting (paying) guest.

The newly announced PowerMark Early Career Prize in PV Reliability will be awarded at PVRW 2025. See information on how to nominate for the prize.
