Upcoming Events - Internal

IEA-PVPS organizes workshops all over the World, in conjunction with conferences, fairs or national events. Meet us in PV fairs all over the World or join our webinars to learn more about the development of PV markets and technologies.

Task 15 | Experts Meeting

Location : Montréal, Canada

Date & Time :5th - 6th June 2019

Upcoming Events - External

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.


Task 16 | Workshop: Best practices for quality control procedures and gap fillip methods

Organized by: IEA PVPS Task 16

Date: 25h June 2019

Location: Lyngby, Copenhagen, Denmark

Quality control and gap filling methods are essential for resource assessments. Many methods are used today. This workshop aims at identifying best practice methods. Currently no standard method exists for gap filling and also quality control is done with different methods and approaches, combining automatic empirical and statistical control procedures and visual assessments. This workshop is part of IEA PVPS Task 16 and SolarPACES Task V. The findings of this workshop are used to describe the used methods and to define the best practices.
