37th EU PVSEC, 07 - 11 September 2020

Standardization of the Protocols for Emerging PV Technologies

Worldwide actions from material research community, companies and reference testing labs to the new measurement guidelines deployment
jointly with the EC Joint Research Centre

Day: Thursday, 12 September 2019Logo EC JRC web
Time: 10:10 - 12:10
Site: EU PVSEC at Marseille Chanot Convention and Exhibition Centre, Marseille, France
Room: Auditorium 5 Morgiou, first floor
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

Parallel event during the 36th EU PVSEC possibly on Thursday 12th initiated by EC Joint Research Centre. The purpose of this event will be to introduce the most relevant works done in the development of measurement guidelines for a reliable characterization of emerging PV technologies, with a strong focus on how material research labs, testing labs and industrial project partners can benefit from a common approach. The workshop will highlight how existing IEC standards can be applied to innovative PV devices and what are the most critical issues not covered by the current version.
