quality

The quality assurance in the photovoltaic industry is yet in its infancy, requiring both underpinning science and trained personnel to reduce costs of energy. An unmet industrial requirement is an accelerated, and operating environment specific service life time and energy yield assessment. SOLAR-TRAIN qualified selected early stage researchers in the field of PV durability as part of a highly innovative, multi-disciplinary project meeting industry requirements.

Numerous studies and surveys indicate that typically-installed HVAC equipment operate inefficiently and waste considerable energy due to varied installation errors (faults) such as improper refrigerant charge, incorrect airflow, oversized equipment, and leaky ducts. This article summarises the results of a large United States (U.S.) experimental/analytical study of the impact that different faults have on the performance of an air-source, single-speed heat pump (ASHP) in a typical U.S. single-family house.

Die Energieberatung des Bundes für Wohneigentümer („Energieberatung für Wohngebäude“) und für mittelständische Unternehmen („Energieberatung Mittelstand“) wird ausgeweitet. Für Verbraucher steht künftig ein größerer Kreis an qualifizierten Energieberatern zur Verfügung. Das Bundeswirtschaftsministerium hat hierzu die Zulassungsvoraussetzungen für Energieberater so geändert, dass künftig qualifizierte Fachleute aus allen Branchen beraten können, sofern sie die hohen Qualifikationsanforderungen erfüllen. Die Beratung erfolgt nach den gleichen Qualitätsmaßstäben wie bisher, d. h.
