SAPVIA Rooftop PV Forum Inaugural Meeting – 17 February 2016

As the uptake in the rooftop PV/embedded generation market is on the increase, SAPVIA had been called upon to take the lead in ensuring the installation of safe and reliable PV installations, as part of its market development activities.

On Wednesday, 17th February 2016, SAPVIA in collaboration with SARETEC engaged with members to map the way forward in terms of the development and implementation of minimum national standards, training programmes, installer quality assurance (e.g. on the basis of a SAPVIA ‘endorsement’ framework), as well as communication/awareness-creation.

Thank you to all who attended and added to the meaningful debate. A special word of gratitude to the event sponsors, SARETEC and GIZ for their generous support of SAPVIA.
