Procurement and Purchasing Decisions

VeraSol provides all market actors access to a free product database of independently tested or certified off-gird solar solutions. By allowing users to search, sort, filter, and compare the performance and quality of hundreds of off-grid solar solutions, VeraSol helps to fill information gaps that enable informed decision-making in procurement and purchasing.


Test Methods, Standards & Program Policies

Test methods and quality standards form the core of the quality assurance program. VeraSol works with manufacturers, distributors, microfinance institutions, NGOs, governments, test labs, and standards bureaus to regularly updates its policies to ensure they remain responsive to the changing market.

VeraSol works directly with the IEC to help improve and maintain test methods (IEC TS 62257-9-5) and standards (IEC TS 62257-9-8) for pico-solar products and solar home system kits.

We maintain a detailed library of outcomes from previous stakeholder outreach. Sign up to be contacted for future outreach efforts.

Product Design

VeraSol maintains a robust library of technical notes and guidance reports that share valuable market and product performance intelligence.

VeraSol also gives product manufacturers direct feedback on how their products can be improved through rigorous testing and product benchmarking. Manufacturers submitting their pico-solar products and solar home system kits for certification receive detailed test reports that help them understand how their product performs.


Policy Support

VeraSol provides policy and technical support to national governments and other institutions looking to support and promote good-quality products. Governments around the world use VeraSol’s quality assurance framework as the basis for tax and duty polices, voluntary market stimulation programs, and regulations to protect consumers from poor-quality products.
