The European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics (ETIP PV) successfully finished its 2021 virtual annual conference with over 700 participants. With the theme of “Solar PV Big & Beyond - Delivering the 2030 climate targets to Europe”, the event discussed the challenges of meeting the 2030 climate targets in four sessions accompanied by a series of live panel discussions. On average, close to 200 participants registered for each of the four sessions.
In the third session “Reliable and Sustainable Solar PV Everywhere”, four dedicated talks on the strategic research agenda, on material challenges, on quality assurance for PV plants and on the dual use of PV were delivered by distinguished PV experts on 20 May 2021.
- The Strategic Importance of Reliability, Sustainability, and Integration in the PV Sector by the European PV SRIA – David Moser, EURAC Research
- Reliability Challenges for New PV Material & Module Developments – Gernot Oreski, PCCL
- Lifecycle PV quality assurance for PV power plants – Paolo V. Chiantore, BayWa r.e.
- Research and Innovation for expanding solar power generation without expanding land use – Bianca Lim, ISFH
These presentations were followed by a moderated panel discussion on “How can PV be installed and integrated in a reliable and sustainable way?”
