Task 13 | Workshop: Maximize Performance & Reliability of PV Power Plants

Location: Munich, Germany

Date & Time: 14th May 2019

Organizer: International Energy Agency PV Power System Programme (IEA PVPS) Task 13

New technologies, ground breaking ideas and innovative solutions are buzzwords at Intersolar 2019. The International Energy Agency (IEA) Photovoltaic Power Systems Program (PVPS) Task 13 presents a workshop on PV system performance & reliability as well as operation & maintenance. Session 8 will address the uncertainty surrounding the main parameters affecting yield assessment and long-term yield prediction and their impact on LCOE and selected business models. Degradation factors will be considered in analyzing performance loss rates in large quantities of both high and low-quality data. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and IEA PVPS Task 13.

Program and Registration (mandatory)

Task 13 | Workshop: Best Practice Solutions for Operation & Maintenance of PV Power Plants

Location: Munich, Germany

Date & Time: 14th May 2019

Organizer: International Energy Agency PV Power System Programme (IEA PVPS) Task 13

In future, new methodologies will be introduced to assess technical risks and mitigation measures in terms of economic impact and effectiveness during operation. These processes will place particular emphasis on providing information on available inspection methods and best practice to qualify PV modules in the field. The presentations in session 9 will also cover the outcomes of the work carried out by IEA PVPS Task 13 experts to provide best practices for O&M guidelines in different climates as well as technical risks quantification for PV power plants. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and IEA PVPS Task 13.

Program and Registration (mandatory)

Task 15 | Applications, Advances and Business Models of BIPV

Location: Munich, Germany

Date & Time: 14th May 2019

Organizer: International Energy Agency PV Power System Programme (IEA PVPS) Task 15

BIPV is seen as one of the key development tracks of PV towards mass application. As BIPV is still seen as an innovation in the construction industry, the large scale adoption still needs to be improved. Adoption in the construction industry depends on 4 elements; product characteristics, adopter characteristics, industry characteristics and the influence on the environment. In this workshop, the different elements for a successful adoption will be covered from different perspectives to generate insight how to successfully create an enabling framework for BIPV acceleration. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and IEA PVPS Task 15.

Program and Registration (mandatory)

Task 17 | PV Powered Transportation of the Future

Location: Munich, Germany

Date & Time: 14th May 2019

Organizer: International Energy Agency PV Power System Programme (IEA PVPS) Task 17

in order to mitigate CO2 emissions in the transport sector, promoting electric vehicles and photovoltaics into private, public and commercial vehicles is the next logical step. While EVs with integrated PVs have the potential to drastically reduce WTW CO2 emissions, battery-powered electric cars will remain crucial to mitigate the impact on existing energy grids. Given our dependence on road vehicles, the market is sure to be a key driver of future PV development. The panel will analyze the practicalities of integrating PV in transport systems and how this could reduce CO2 emissions. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and IEA PVPS Task 17.

Task 15 | Task Phase 2 Definition Workshop

Date : 7th June 2019

Location : Montréal, Canada

Task 17 & Task 1 | IEA PVPS Workshop about PV & Transport and Grid Cost

Location: Chicago, USA

Date & Time: 18th June 2019

Organizer: IEA PVPS Task 1 & Task 17 - IEEE PVSC

Session 1 about PV & Transport :
in order to mitigate CO2 emissions in the transport sector, promoting electric vehicles and photovoltaics into private, public and commercial vehicles is the next logical step. While EVs with integrated PVs have the potential to drastically reduce WTW CO2 emissions, battery-powered electric cars will remain crucial to mitigate the impact on existing energy grids. Given our dependence on road vehicles, the market is sure to be a key driver of future PV development. The panel will analyze the practicalities of integrating PV in transport systems and how this could reduce CO2 emissions.

Session 2 about Grid Costs : barriers or drivers?
Objectives: Costs of solar electricity have fallen so rapidly that new markets, applications and business models are being unlocked faster than is generally realised. With the increase of variable renewable energy and distributed generation, cost for grid has been discussed. This event will first discuss the development of the PV market, and discuss the various issues related to grid-cost in terms of economical view for self-consumption, grid design for hosting further variable electricity sources.

These sessions are jointly organized by IEEE PVSC, IEA PVPS Task 17 and IEA PVPS Task 1.
