IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme

  • The IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) is one of the collaborative R&D Agreements established within the IEA and, since its establishment in 1993, the PVPS participants have been conducting a variety of joint projects in the application of photovoltaic conversion of solar energy into electricity.
  • How to participate?

The IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) conducts joint projects in the application of photovoltaic conversion of solar energy into electricity. Currently seven research projects, so-called Tasks, are established within the IEA PVPS Programme.

Ongoing Tasks

Task 1: Exchange and dissemination of information on photovoltaic power systems

Task 8: Very large scale photovoltaic power generation systems in remote areas

Task 9: Deploying PV Services for regional development

Task 11: PV hybrid systems within mini-grids (now integrated within Task 9).

Task 12: PV environmental health and safety

Task 13: Performance and Reliability of Photovoltaic Systems

Task 14: High Penetration of PV Systems in Electricity Grids
