New IEC TC117—Solar Thermal Electric Plants


7/25/2011 4:04 PM

A new technical committee is being formed in the International Electrotechnical Commission Technical Committee (IEC TC) 117. This committee will prepare international standards in the field of solar thermal electric plants at system and component levels, including measurement standards for performance tests.

These plants produce renewable energy by converting the sun’s energy into heat that can produce electrical energy directly or after storage.

To enable U.S. interests in this field to participate in the development of international standards by IEC TC117, a U.S. National Committee Technical Advisory Group is being formed under administration by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Those interested in joining this USNC TAG for IEC TC117 should contact Susan Malohn, USNC TAG Secretary for IEC TC 117 at 847-664-1725 or susan.p.malohn@us.ul.com.
