Task 1 : Trends in PV Development – Self-consumption and innovative Distributed Applications

While distributed PV represented one third of global PV installations in 2018, it is poised to develop fast in the coming years under new policies and adequate regulatory frameworks. Self-consumption policies are evolving towards more complex and decentralized regulations allowing collective and virtual self-consumption, while innovative business models allow to rethink electricity production and consumption.
This event will first discuss the development of the PV market, and the impact of policies on the speed at which PV could develop. Will policies continue to shape the market and especially long-term targets? How are self-consumption policies developing and what does that mean for the energy transition? Are electricity markets adapted?
As an official event of the EU PVSEC 2019, this PVPS Programme Workshop is jointly organised by IEA - International Energy Agency and the EU PVSEC. Partners: SET-Plan Action 4, Self-Consumption Initiative, PVProsumer4Grid Horizon2020 Project.

Task 12 :Eco-Design, Eco Labeling, Green Public Procurement – Sustainability Leadership for the Terawatt Age

The preparatory study of the European Commission on Eco-Design, Eco-Labeling, Green Public Procurement and Energy Labeling for PV modules, inverters and PV systems will be concluded in June/July 2019 with policy recommendations for sustainable product policies for these components.
At the same time, the International Sustainability Leadership Standard for PV Modules and Inverters (NSF457) will be finalized and form the basis for an EPEAT listing of these components and an international eco-label as well as Green Public Procurement rules for PV modules and inverters, potentially applicable in 33+ countries globally.
The parallel event should provide an overview on these policy developments and give perspectives from the industry, procurement and customer side on proposed policy measures as well as lining out the potential effects these would have on product developments and industrial policy in the European Union.
What will be the effect of potential policy measures in the EU and how can those be streamlined with the international sustainability leadership standard and discussions around the taxonomy for sustainable finance
?

Task 13 : Innovations in Photovoltaic Materials

As a parallel event of the EU PVSEC 2019, the Workshop “Innovations in Photovoltaic Materials” organized by the International Energy Agency (IEA) Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) Task 13, will present ideas, concepts, and results from a global set of researchers aiming to both reduce cost and improve the performance and reliability of PV modules and systems by using new materials.

 Task 15 : BIPV – Moving into the Next Phase

In 2015, the IEA PVPS Task 15 collaboration started, focusing on the creation of an enabling framework for the acceleration of BIPV. Together with a number of other international research collaboration, such as ETIP WG, these collaborations have contributed to the international uptake of BIPV. In 2019, the first phase of IEA PVPS Task 15 will come to an end and a second phase is in development. In this parallel event, the results of the international collaboration in IEA PVPS Task 15 and the ongoing and future collaboration within ETIP will be presented, and the concept of the second phase of IEA PVPS Task 15 will be discussed, giving insight in the status quo of international collaboration in the field of BIPV, and input to answering the question: “What should be the future steps of international collaboration in the field of BIPV?”

Task 17 : PV & Transport

Objectives: In order to mitigate CO2 emission in the transport sector, promoting electrified vehicles (EVs) is suggested as an effective option. Then, a mutual exploitation of PV and electrified vehicles with battery should be a key for reducing CO2 emissions in the transport sector. It is expected that a potential of PV market in the transport sector will be large and the market will be the next driving force for the further development of PV. In this session, possible approaches for ‘PV for Transport’ will be discussed after presentation by key experts in this field.

Task 1 : 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.
