Message from the Technical Programme Chairman
Responding to suggestions from the scientific community, the 29th EU PVSEC Conference programme tackles the latest challenges with the adaptation of the topical structure.
Dear Members of the Photovoltaic Solar Community,
The political and economic discussion in the PV sector is shifting from installed capacities to levelised costs of electricity (LCOE) per kWh during the different times of the day. These costs are not only influenced by the available solar radiation, efficiency, performance, reliability and lifetime of the PV systems but equally by design, orientation, sizing and placing of the PV systems in the electricity system. Available auxiliary grid services like voltage and frequency stabilisation as well as local and central storage options add to the value of PV generated electricity.
Responding to suggestions from the scientific community, the 29th EU PVSEC Conference programme tackles these challenges with the adaptation of the topical structure. This allows for an increased focus on the topics of reliability issues on module and system level, as well as on aspects of grid integration and dispatchable electricity from PV systems. This includes the need for new materials and concepts in module design and manufacturing, for power electronics and for the use of PV as building material and customer driven developments. The associated necessary changes in policy perception, legal frameworks and related regulations complete this topical extension.
