The European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (35th EU PVSEC)

StoRES participated in the World’s Largest Specialist PV Solar Conference

The experts of the PV solar branch met at EU PVSEC on September 24th-28th, 2018 to discuss new concepts, trends and developments in science and industry. The EU PVSEC provides the most inspiring platform for dialogue and information exchange across the World.

EU PVSEC is the leading international conference in the photovoltaics sector. For over 30 years, it has been serving as the annual meeting point for PV experts from research, development and industry.

 

At the 35th EU PVSEC from 24-28 September, more than 2,000 international solar experts from over 80 countries gathered to present the latest research in solar technology. Leaders from politics and industry in Europe discussed the necessary steps to reach the recently agreed 32% EU renewable energy target by 2030. The consensus: PV will be of strategic importance for the EU economy, providing energy independence, industrial jobs and economic growth. Europe is leading in technological development, state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, sustainability of production and quality, as well as efficiency of PV products.

 

StoRES participated at the conference with the submission of paper and a 15-minute oral presentation on the residential battery storage sizing based on daily PV production and consumption load profile characterization The StoRES presentation was attended by approximately 100 academics, engineers, professionals and students.

 

The conference ended after 5 days of intensive scientific debates on the further development of solar power with a strong message. “While solar is already the lowest cost power generation source in many places in the world, it is now about speeding up the efforts to quickly utilizing this unique clean and distributed power technology to combat climate change,” said Dr. Pierre Verlinden, Conference General Chairman, at the closing ceremony. “We need 100%-decarbonized electricity generation to power all energy sectors and industrial processes – and PV will play a central role.
