The area of reliability and durability of PV modules and systems is accepted as crucial and important by industry and policy makers and has the highest priority. Without an understanding of life-time costs, inappropriate materials or components might be used, resulting in pre-mature failure. Currently, also a “one module type fits all” approach is commonly used in PV industry, where one standard module design and unified material quality level composition is used for applications in widely varying climatic conditions and setups around the world.
