DNV GL Expands Solar Capabilities

DNV GL Expands Solar Capabilities with Purchase of Assets from Amplify Energy. Continuous growth of new and maturing solar assets increases the need for trustworthy, comprehensive component testing and system evaluation

DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts, has expanded its solar offering with new capabilities, facilities and expertise through the purchase of key assets from Amplify Energy.

 

SOLAR TESTING AND ASSET MANAGEMENT RESOURCE

 

“With these additions, DNV GL continues to expand as the premier solar testing and asset management resource for manufacturers, investors, developers and operators around the world,” said Carole Barbeau, DNV GL President of Energy Advisory for the Americas.

The new assets include environmental chambers, dynamic mechanical load system, precision PV module performance measurement system, and additional electrical and mechanical test equipment. Also included is custom tools developed to perform precise evaluation of operating PV plant performance.

“Thorough evaluation of PV components in the lab and field requires specialized equipment and world-class facilities designed to enable throughput and repeatability,” said Elizabeth Mayo, DNV GL’s Head of Department for Laboratory Services. “This new capability and equipment will nearly double our capacity to meet the growing needs of the solar industry.”

 

ACQUISITION OF PV EVOLUTIONS LABS

 

This additional expansion of DNV GL’s solar capabilities compliments its acquisition of PV Evolution Labs [PVEL] in 2014. DNV GL’s Laboratory Services group continues to support over 150 downstream partners including the largest banks, developers, IPPs and EPCs. The team offers ISO 17025 accredited testing services in both laboratory and field focused applications, ensuring projects are built with quality PV equipment and operate well over their lifespan. DNV GL’s testing services include PV module, inverter, battery, and mounting/tracking system qualification and batch verification testing.

Amplify Energy was created in 2015 when it was independently spun off from Yingli Green Energy Americas, Inc. ("Yingli"), a partially-owned subsidiary of Yingli Green Energy Holding Company (NYSE: YGE).
