OUR MISSION: TO MAXIMIZE THE PROFITABILITY OF PHOTOVOLTAIC INVESTMENTS

QPV is a photovoltaic engineering and consultancy firm specialized in providing high added value services to maximize the profitability of PV investments.

We follow PV projects through their entire life cycle, guaranteeing the equipment’s quality, optimizing their production capacity and reducing their performance uncertainty, which allows minimizing risks and improving the project’s financing conditions.

WHY US?

  • Our team is formed by photovoltaic solar energy PhD and engineers with more than 10 years of experience in the PV sector.
  • We have a wide expertise as independent consultants in project financing audits.
  • We have provided engineering support and accomplished quality control procedures in more than 80 installations (>700 MW) in several countries of Europe, America, Asia and Africa.
  • As a spin-off of the Solar Energy Institute, QPV incorporates 25 years of know-how in the implementation of quality assurance procedures and the solution of novel problems in the field.

MILESTONES

  • Discovery, measurement and solution proposal for PID affection in the field (2008).
  • World record I-V curve (800 kW), 8 times larger than standard measurements (2011).
  • First procedure for measuring and dealing with hot-spots in the field, which includes clear acceptance/rejection thresholds (2012).
  • Production estimation methodology with an accuracy better than 1,5%, TSO oriented (2014), and incorporated to our advanced performance surveillance service (PVET).

QUALITY GUARANTEE

  • Patented quality control methodology.
  • Continuous upgrade by means of a collaboration agreement with the Solar Energy Institute of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM).
  • Access to cutting-edge improvements due to our participation in the PVCROPS and MASLOWATEN projects, from the European Research Programme.
  • Certified quality management system: ISO-9001.
