National Institute of Metrology (NIM), China successfully held "APEC Training Workshop on Solar Cells and LED Measurement Standards and Technologies"

From March 28th to 30th, the "APEC Training Workshop on Solar Cells and LED Measurement Standards and Technologies" was successfully held at NIM’s Changping campus . 31 scientific and technological personnel from 14 countries of APEC or APMP members and 30 Chinese students from metrological institutions or research institutes all over the country attended the training.

        This workshop is organized by NIM, China in cooperation with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is sponsored by the APEC Cooperation Fund of China. The training workshop invited four foreign lectures, including Dr. Yoshi Ohno, Chairman of the Commission Internationale de L'Eclairage (CIE), Dr. Peter Blattner, Chairman of the Division 2 of the CIE. Liu Hui, Zhao Weiqiang, He Yingwei and Zhang Junchao, the specialist of NIM, are among the lecturers.

        The training courses lasts for three days, including the basic knowledge of solid-state lighting and solar photovoltaic measurement, traceability system, calibration methods, uncertainty analysis and international standards CIE S025 "LED lights and LED module measurement methods" and related experimental courses. The students receive comprehensive and in-depth training and highly praise it.

        The success of the training course on solar cells and LED measurement sets a good stage for technical exchanges and cooperation of the APEC, APMP member countries.

        This training, approved and supported by the PPSTI of APEC, is the third APEC project hosted by NIM. It is the implementation of plan of 2015 APEC renewable energy and climate science metrology seminar held in Beijing and a contribution of NIM to improving the overall Asia-Pacific developing countries’ metrology. Moreover, it has positive effects in boosting the full use of renewable energy and energy-saving technologies and tackling energy shortages and climate change.
