Energy Testing Services

In addition to the various types of testing and certification services that we offer for product manufacturers of all types, NTS also offers various services specifically designed for the energy industry. With one of the largest networks of energy testing labs in the country, we can quickly and affordably turn around projects of any complexity.

Nuclear Power

NTS is an international leader and single-source provider of product qualification and testing services for the nuclear power industry. We deliver cost-effective solutions that help you mitigate risk and maintain compliance with IEEE, EPRI and other safety guidelines. Specific services include complete EMI/RFI testing and analysis, either on-site or at your location. We can also provide software verification and validation for all microprocessor-based equipment, as well as equipment obsolescence planning and assistance with new component selection.

Nuclear power is highly regulated. Staying up to date on the latest requirements takes help from experts who know the industry. Make NTS your partner for all nuclear energy testing services to benefit from our more than 50 years of innovation and leadership.

Smart Grid Testing

In addition to our full range of nuclear qualification and dedication services, we also offer various other special services and capabilities targeted at new smart energy technologies. Energy testing for the smart grid is an evolving area of specialization NTS is uniquely qualified to fulfill. Our team has extensive experience engineering creative solutions to meet compliance requirements for meters, outlets, thermostats and other components of smart grid systems.

We are constantly expanding or improving our testing services to meet the challenges of this growing industry. Currently, we are able to provide turnkey compliance solutions for NIST, IEC and IEEE standards. Our current smart grid energy testing services include environmental simulation, reliability testing, portal testing and more.

Solar and Photovoltaic

The use of renewable power generation systems is on the rise worldwide, driven in part by falling prices on PV equipment and government incentives for switching to clean technology. To meet the challenges associated with this growing consumer need, NTS has been expanding its solar energy testing services. We are currently in the process of implementing solar module efficiency testing, as well as PV module and grid tie inverter certification to UL1703 and UL1741 standards, in many of our labs across the country. In addition, we can provide accelerated life testing (ALT) and thermal cycling for PV components. Contact the NTS head office for more information about our complete selection of solar and other renewable energy testing services.
