UL at Intersolar Europe 2017 – Enhance Compliance, Mitigate Risk

April 4, 2017

FRANKFURT, Germany, April 4, 2017UL, a global safety science organization, today announced it will be exhibiting at Intersolar Europe 2017 in Munich, Germany – the world’s leading annual exhibition for the solar industry, with a focus on how to enhance compliance and mitigate risks across the global energy value chain. Stationed in Hall A2, Stand #570 from May 31 to June 2, UL invites interested parties to learn how the company can help customers with all stages of a projects development cycle. UL has expanded its renewable energy portfolio with its acquisition of AWS Truepower, a company offering full life-cycle solutions for renewable projects and a global leader and trusted name in independent engineering, energy and advisory services for over 30 years. This combination of UL’s existing and enhanced energy experience and technical knowledge has created a renewable energy powerhouse offering specialized services to meet all the needs of the energy industry including initial feasibility, preconstruction, independent engineering to support project financing and operations. In addition, UL now offers services to address planning and policy issues, such as the increasing integration of renewable projects within electric grid systems.

UL offers several reasons to visit us at Intersolar. First, during the accompanying conference, UL’s Principal Engineer, Tim Zgonena, will speak about “Grid Stabilization during Abnormal Operation instead of Disconnection” according to UL 1741 SA, CA Rule 21” on May, 31, 2017 at ICM München, Room 5. Additionally, Ibrahim Jilani, Global Business Development, UL LLC, U.S. will speak about “Repurposing of Automotive Batteries and 2nd Life Strategies according to UL1974” on May 30, 2017 at ICM München Room 13B.

Secondly, UL invites visitors to meet solar photovoltaics technical experts to discuss the safety qualifications of PV modules to the new IEC 61730 Standard as well as advanced inverter testing to the UL 1741 SA supplement for CA Rule 21 and other Source Requirement Documents (SRDs). This will give visitors the opportunity to chat with UL’s technical team about the requirements to receive system certification under UL 9540 for the integration of PV projects with energy storage systems, including a UL 1973-certified stationary battery pack used in conjunction with a UL 1741-certified inverter.
Finally, UL’s booth will present an extensive range of services, including testing, inspection, auditing, certification and performance verification of photovoltaics, energy storage systems (ESS), inverters and distributed generation products, as well as on products and solutions for smart renewable energy, such as batteries.
