Sustainable Energy Testing Program

The Sustainable Energy Testing Program (SETP) is a certification program that is used to evaluate and certify the performance and sustainability of renewable energy technologies. The SETP is operated by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), which is a research laboratory that is funded by the US Department of Energy.

Sustainable Energy Testing Program

To obtain SETP accreditation, a renewable energy technology must undergo a series of testing and evaluation procedures to ensure that it meets certain performance and sustainability criteria. These criteria may include factors such as the technology's efficiency, reliability, and environmental impact.

SETP accreditation can be beneficial for several reasons. It can help to demonstrate the performance and sustainability of a renewable energy technology to regulatory bodies, customers, and other stakeholders, and may be required in order to qualify for certain contracts or business opportunities. SETP accreditation can also help to improve the performance and sustainability of the technology, and may lead to increased efficiency and cost savings.
