Inspection Solar cells

Glava Energy Center's two 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 panels and batteries breaks records every year in Sweden, but alongside the positive industry development, there are warning signs. The Swedish Electrical Safety Authority and insurance companies have warned of deficient installation work, and within the industry, there are warnings of a shortage of qualified workforce.

The industry organization Swedish Solar Energy has worked out guidelines for the inspection of solar power installations during the spring of 2023. To meet the industry's need for safe installations and facilities, Glava Energy Center now offers an inspection course aimed at strengthening the quality, safety, and continued positive development in the solar energy industry.
