According to Dave Holleran, Senior Manager of Module Sales for Motech

circumstances that have impacted their profitability, and a need exists to
take a current, in-depth look at the core issues. To accomplish this, the
program will focus on the ramifications of module performance and reliability
in the field, the limitations of standard testing and certifications in
predicting long-term field performance, and best practices for solar EPCs and
developers when it comes to module procurement and product risk. That's why
we took steps to support this initiative."

  oWhat are the most common means of module performance degradation and
    failure in the field?
  oWhat materials, value chain elements and process steps have the highest
    element of risk or most impact on performance and reliability?
  oWhat are the limitations of standard certifications such as TUV and IEC,
    and standard testing procedures (e.g. flash tests, accelerated lifetime
    tests) in predicting performance/reliability? Where do they tend to come
    up short?
