In the solar market, DNV GL provides engineering, technology review, design assistance and operations management services. PVEL has laboratory and outdoor test facilities to evaluate solar panels and other solar system components.
‘The lab and field testing capabilities of PVEL complement and enhance our services to our clients who finance, develop and operate PV power plants,’ says David Walker, CEO of DNV GL's global energy business.
DNV GL was formed from the merger of DNV, KEMA, Garrad Hassan and GL Renewables Certification.Â
