The AQM award by TÜV Rheinland China
As the world's leading technology and service provider with over 40 years of experience in the photovoltaic industry, TÜV Rheinland tests and certifies technical components for safety, reliability, and durability. For nine consecutive years, the organisation has hosted the AQM Solar & ESS Congress "All Quality Matters" in China with awards in various categories. The AQM Award is recognised for its objective and credible evaluation process and authoritative neutral selection mechanism. The samples to be tested are randomly selected from mass production. In China, the largest photovoltaic component manufacturing country, the AQM Award is the most prestigious industry award. The country’s component production accounts for about 71% of the world’s total capacity.
