Title:New knowledge how to make the very large scale PVs happen on the desert! [A]
Issue date:2006/08/31
Description:In 2003, IEA PVPS Task 8 published their report titled “Energy from the Desert” concerning Very Large Scale Photovoltaic Power Generation (VLS-PV) Systems on deserts. Through their 5 year really international, collaborative works, the book showed that VLS-PV, ranging from several mega watts to giga watts, is not a simple dream story but becomes realistic in near future. For the past 3 years since then, specialists in the task have studied and proposed more detailed, practical, demonstrative R&D approaches toward the realization of VLS-PV in different regions in the world deserts: e.g., the Mediterranean region, the Middle East, Asia and Oceania. These new works will be published soon as the Second Phase Report of Task VIII titled “Energy from the Desert - Practical Proposals for Very Large Scale Photovoltaic Systems” and their essences are to be released at the conference right before the publication.
