Pico-solar products and solar home system (SHS) kits that meet the Quality Standards will soon be issued VeraSol certificates instead of Lighting Global verification letters.
On Thursday, May 7 at 13:00 GMT, VeraSol hosted a webinar about the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) quality standards for pico-solar products and SHS kits.
VeraSol and Efficiency for Access piloted a QA framework for solar-powered TVs and fans. Their learning paper presents the quality criteria, documents key lessons learned, and provides recommendations for future QA efforts
VeraSol has joined the Africa Clean Energy Technical Assistance Facility to support the development of quality standards and implementation procedures in fourteen countries across the continent.
This update contains information about VeraSol's March 2020 webinars on the transition to VeraSol and the International Electrotechnical Committee’s adoption of quality standards.
This update summarizes VeraSol's activities and accomplishments at the 2020 Global Off-Grid Solar Forum & Expo.
On February 18, 2020, Lighting Global, CLASP, and the Schatz Energy Research Center launched VeraSol, an evolved quality assurance program that responds to the market’s growing needs.
Later this year, the International Electrotechnical Commission, a leading international standards organization, will for the first time publish quality standards for standalone solar energy kits. This development opens the door to the widespread national adoption of these standards and will boost consumer protection efforts.
Lighting Global Quality Assurance is now VeraSol. To prepare for this transition, the QA team has developed a list of frequently asked questions about the new and evolved program.
