Photovoltaic (PV) Rooftop Panels – Understand the Fire Risk

White Paper

Manage the Fire Risks Associated with PV Systems

Over the last few years, photovoltaic (PV) installations have become increasingly popular, due to a combination of reduced purchase costs, ongoing government incentives, and improved installation practices. However, this rapid expansion has also created unforeseen technical and fire service challenges, forcing building codes and fire service tactics to evolve. Separate standards applying to individual components of PV systems now take a systematic approach to fire safety.

Managing the fire risks associated with PV systems is a critical part of any property risk management program for the ultimate protection of personnel, facilities, and other crucial company assets. TÜV SÜD Global Risk Consultants are dedicated to providing sound, cost-effective Fire Protection Engineering to address today’s newest challenges in fire and explosion property loss prevention coupled with increased competitive demands.
