Anyone who would like to find out about current developments in photovoltaics can now take advantage of an offer from the International Energy Agency.
Globally connected research for continuously optimizing solar thermal power plant technology, that is the goal of the CSP-ERANET network.
Reports from the International Energy Agency's PVPS Photovoltaic programme address current trends and developments in photvoltaics.
Humid weather is a risk factor for frequency converters. Field data analyses show pronounced seasonal failures of the electronic devices.
Wind turbines create data gaps in weather radar measurements. At RIWER, project partners develop suitable measurement and analysis procedures.
In Newcline, researchers are demonstrating a liquid salt storage system with a single tank and heat-storing bricks in a large-scale research facility.
With JenErgieReal, researchers demonstrate in practice how cities can be sustainably supplied with power and heat.
In addition to technology, photovoltaics must also take meteorological and astronomical events - such as solar eclipses - into account.
The World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC) took place in Milan in late September.
