37th EU PVSEC, 07 - 11 September 2020

Performance of New Photovoltaic System Concepts and Designs

jointly with the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (IEA PVPS) – IEA PVPS Task 13

Day: Thursday, 10 September 2020IEA PVPS Logos web
Time: 08:30 - 12:30
Site: EU PVSEC online
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

As a parallel event of the 37th EU PVSEC, the Workshop “Performance of New Photovoltaic System Concepts and Designs” organized by the International Energy Agency (IEA) Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) Task 13, will present recommendations how to characterize the performance of innovative PV systems where the current methods cannot be applied, including economic aspects.
Also, performance experiences with innovative PV systems in case studies will be presented and discussed with the experts.
