Completed Projects

The activities of the IEA PVPS Programme

The IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) conducts joint projects in the application of photovoltaic conversion of solar energy into electricity. A number of activities initiated under the programme are considered to be complete (though in some cases further work is being undertaken in another Task). The completed tasks are:

Task 2. Performance, Reliability and Analysis of Photovoltaic Systems. Concluded in 2010


Task 3. Use of photovoltaic power systems in stand-alone and island applications

Task 5. Design and grid interconnection of building integrated and other dispersed photovoltaic systems, concluded in 2003

Task 6. Design and operation of modular photovoltaic plants for large scale power generation, concluded in 1997

Task 7. Photovoltaic power systems in the built environment, concluded in 2003

Task 10. Urban-scale grid-connected PV applications. Concluded in 2010.


Task 11. PV Hybrid Systems Within Mini-Grids.
