Chinese National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Products Quality (CPVT)
The National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Products Quality (CPVT) is located in Wuxi, was established upon the approval of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People’s Republic of China in 2007. CPVT has a highly qualified photovoltaic inspection and research team, with nearly 100 employees and over RMB 100 million invested in fixed equipment assets. It processes inspection and research capabilities in photovoltaic products in the whole industry chain, including PV raw and auxiliary materials, PV components, PV assembly, PV power station, etc. CPVT is a CB laboratory accredited by the IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE), a member of the IEC TC82 PV Standards Committee, as well as the leading organization of the Systems and Components Work Group, PV Power Generation and Industrialization Standard Implementation Group of the Standardization Administration of the People’s Republic of China. Relying on the international cooperation network of CPVT, it is able to provide one-stop authentication services for PV producers to gain access to all markets.
"Throughout the years, we have seen many excellent scientific research talents who made a great number of technical innovations in the field of solar PV and energy storage. Very often, due to the lack of support from professional commercial and marketing institutions and persons, scientific researchers had to wait for very long from the generation of a new technology to its application on a large scale. The initiators of the Bright Minds Challenge are institutions and enterprises with strong professional background globally, who are dedicated to the incubation of 100% renewable energy projects. Anyone with a solution relevant to renewable energy, especially in the fields of solar power and renewable energy storage, can submit an entry. This is a great opportunity for scientific talents in China."
