WCPEC-8 Side Event: PV as an Ancillary Service Provider – Laboratory and Field Experiences from IEA PVPS Countries (PVPS Task 14)

26 September 2022 - 13:30 - 15:00
WCPEC-8, Milan

The PV penetration in many countries is continuously growing and PV is becoming a major energy source in the future electricity grid worldwide. Therefore, PV systems and PV hybrids need to take over more and more system responsibility by providing ancillary services. This workshop highlights the status and the potential of PV and PV hybrids as an ancillary service provider, by collecting experiences and lessons learned from field experiences and laboratory tests from different IEA PVPS countries.
