Key Trends in Global PV Markets

jointly organised with the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (IEA PVPS) – IEA PVPS Task 1 in cooperation with IRENA

Day: Monday, 06 September 2021 | Time: 13:30 - 16:45 CEST | Site: EU PVSEC Online Platform
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

IEA PVPS identified that 140 GW of solar PV were installed in 2020 globally. But what can we expect in the coming years and which can be the key market drivers to PV development, in Europe and globally. While distributed PV applications focus increasingly on complex self-consumption schemes and energy communities, utility-scale plants start to sell competitively electricity on wholesale markets. But new challenges appear with emerging niches and the growing share of PV in the electricity production. This event will pave the way for future PV markets developments and their diversifying drivers.

Qualification of PV Power Plants using Mobile Test Equipment

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

Day: Tuesday, 07 September 2021 | Time: 08:30 – 10:00 CEST | Site: EU PVSEC Online Platform
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

As a parallel event of the 38th EU PVSEC, the session “Qualification of PV Power Plants using Mobile Test Equipment” organized by the International Energy Agency (IEA) Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) Task 13, will present on-site inspection methods and techniques to qualify PV power plants. The presented on-site inspection methods are helpful tools to identify drivers for underperforming PV power plants. Their particular strength lies in the fact that the tests are carried without dismantling and shipping the PV modules to a laboratory, which often means long transport routes, transport risks and a long down time of the PV strings. Furthermore, on-site inspection methods allow a more targeted failure analysis, as PV modules are not blindly selected. The quality and significance of the inspection results are comparable to that of laboratory tests.

Besides technical information and field experience, good practice recommendations for field use and evaluated uncertainties compared to laboratory inspection methods will be presented and discussed with the experts.

Day: Wednesday, 08 September 2021 | Time: 13:30 – 16:45 CEST | Site: EU PVSEC Online Platform
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

The event encompasses the design aspects of PV systems deployed in landscapes or in the built environment, or in agricultural areas. It aims to demonstrate the importance of designing PV Systems in a way that they enrich the visible surroundings of citizens, rather than creating disturbance. For the 2021 edition, the event will feature the motto THE PATTERN THAT CONNECTS. The societal impacts of the current pandemic create the need for a thorough afterthought regarding the way we inhabit this Planet. SALs 2021 would like to give a vision for the city and its surroundings as a laboratory for integrating PV concepts and technologies which remove pressure we expose the Planet, considering the human connections as a main driver of our life.
