PV System Performance and PV Module Reliability

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

Day: Tuesday, 26 September 2017
Time: 08:30 - 12:30

The parallel event “PV System Performance and PV Module Reliability”, organized by the International Energy Agency (IEA) Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) Task 13, will present information on state-of-the-art PV system performance, technical and financial models and quality of components as well as the achievements of the common work of the task experts over the last three years from the second phase of its work programme 2014 - 2017.
