Solar PV & Fire Safety Workshop @ Fronius UK
Feb 1 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Solar PV & Fire Safety Workshop @ Fronius UK

Photovoltaics is an extremely safe technology, yet some people still have unsubstantiated safety concerns. Rumours about burning houses that can’t be extinguished or firefighters who do not attack a fire if PV is involved put rooftop PV systems in a light they do not deserve. In fact, PV systems are of a very high safety level concerning preventative fire protection as well as operational safety and security in case of a fire.

According to a study by the BRE National Solar Centre, of the 1 million PV systems installed in the UK, approx. 0.0058% of these were involved in a fire incident, with the main causes being external factors like lightning or installation faults. This is a small figure if you compare it to 48%* of accidental dwelling fires in the UK from April 2019 – March 2019 were caused by cooking appliances.

Join world leading inverter manufacturer Fronius and a team of renewable, safety and insurance industry experts to look closer at the current situation regarding PV systems and fire safety in selected countries, and give an overview of the main reasons for arc faults in PV systems.
