Solar technology reviews

Our solar technology reviews increase investor confidence in your company and products, which can help you secure new clients and reduce the cost of financing.

In order to ensure investor confidence in your company or products, potential investors want to know how well a product performs, its reliability, a company’s reputation or stage of industry maturity. DNV’s solar technology reviews are an industry recognized approach that examine the questions of most interest to potential investors and presents the findings in the context of industry best practice.

Our solar technology review adds value. An independent technology review by our recognized experts can identify and help mitigate potential risks, assess the strengths and weakness of your products and processes, and highlight your competitive edge.  

Independent solar technology review
Our review process includes analysis of the design, performance, reliability, operations, maintenance, and regulatory compliance of the product. Third party test data is heavily considered when forming a position on a product. In addition, the supply chain, manufacturing, quality, process controls, and warranty are assessed.

Our technology review methods involve an interactive review of product documentation, discussion with product engineers, and visits to the manufacturing facility and operating product sites. The end result is a professional independent report that you can present to your customers and those financing your projects.
