To ensure the adoption of solar technology in Bangladesh, it is necessary to ensure the quality of solar equipment to sustain the market. Keeping this in mind, Bangladesh Standard and Testing Institute (BSTI) has already developed standards for solar panels, inverters, charge controllers and solar batteries in collaboration with Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA). As part of the approach, in 2015-17 a survey was conducted on the existing solar laboratories in Bangladesh under the leadership of SREDA. A 15-member committee was formed with representatives from government sector, private organizations, financing institutes and academicians. The committee has recommended 10 laboratories to fulfill the requirement within one year for possible accreditation with equipment and testing protocol. As a follow-up step, SREDA requested REEEP II to conduct a survey for assessing up-to-date capabilities of the various laboratories. Scope of this study was to assess availability of laboratory equipment for testing solar panels, inverters, charge controllers and batteries according to BDS IEC Standards; assess lab capacities for possible certification and accreditation, conduct analysis to determine the difference between the requirements for accreditation and the current capacity of laboratories, review/collect standard lab equipment cost in international market, estimate the budget need for accreditation of laboratories. Initial part of the assessment started on 24 June 2021, when a set of questionnaires was sent out by mail and email to the selected organizations to gather information and feedback. After that, 6 laboratories have been selected for physical visit based on response of assessment questions, accessibility, and solar variation. However, considering all accessible locations for importers, interest and potential capacity - three laboratories have been recommended for the next step for accreditation.
