SEMI PV Standards

Photovoltaic Standards

Charter of Global Photovoltaic Committee

Explore, evaluate, discuss, and create consensus-based standard measurement methods, specifications, guidelines, and practices that, through voluntary compliance, will promote mutual understanding and improved communication between users and suppliers of photovoltaic manufacturing equipment, materials and services to enhance the manufacturing efficiency and capability so as to reduce manufacturing cost of the photovoltaic (PV) industry.

For Charters of PV Automation and PV Materials Committees, scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Scope

  • To include liaisons and synergies with other SEMI technical committees for the development of PV-related standards.
  • The PV standards committee scope is limited to exploring and developing standards that pertain to common criteria, guidelines, methods for control and comparison of PV-related process/metrology equipment, materials or components ,excluding those covered either by PV Automation Committee or by PV Materials Committee. It will seek to support the international need for increasing PV product / process yield and reducing related PV costs per Watt peak.
  • In anticipation of ANSI accreditation, this committee will investigate opportunities towards ISO/IEC harmonization of efforts.
  • In addition to the above, the committee will also facilitate any industry initiatives towards product standardization needs.

Scope

  • To include liaisons and synergies with other SEMI technical committees for the development of PV-related standards. 
  • The PV standards committee scope is limited to exploring and developing standards that pertain to common criteria, guidelines, methods for control and comparison of PV-related materials. Tentatively, Gas & Chemicals may be included until relevant Committee is formed.
