Inspection Solar cells

Glava Energy Center's 1.5-day training on the inspection of solar power systems includes theory and practical training in the form of troubleshooting in an authentic environment at Glava Energy Center's solar park. The course provides in-depth knowledge of solar cell inspection and the general guidelines and regulations that exist.

The number of new installations of solar power systems and batteries breaks records every year in Sweden. However, parallel to the positive industry development, there are warning signs. The number of error reports is increasing, the Swedish Electrical Safety Authority and insurance companies warn of inadequate installation work, and the industry warns of a lack of qualified workforce. The industry organization Svensk Solenergi has developed inspection guidelines for solar power systems during the spring of 2023. To meet the industry's need for secure installations and systems, Glava Energy Center now offers an inspection course aimed at strengthening the quality, safety, and continued positive development in the solar energy industry.

Inspectors, supervisors, project managers, installation managers, solar cell and electrical installers.
