Ensuring quality and efficient execution of renewable energy projects while complying with all standards and regulations requires a systematic quality assurance process that differs from conventional power projects. This is due to the intermittent nature of RE, government policies and advanced technologies needing new skill sets. This lecture discusses a QA process for RE project development based on reliable papers as well as experience with these projects in Malaysia and proposes a framework for all stages in RE project development given related uncertainties and challenges.
