The article focuses on the concept of photovoltaics and other alternative energy solutions that offer economic opportunities. One step toward that progress is the continuing groundswell in photovoltaics. A shortage of testing capacity, that is not enough for testing laboratories and engineers worldwide to meet the optimal timeframes of testing and certification is described.
