ETIP PV Annual Conference went successfully

On 10 and 11 May, around 150 participants attended the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics (ETIP PV) conference in Brussels.

The conference was the occasion to emphasize the strong European solar PV R&I landscape. However, greater investments in R&I are required to successfully support the growth of the European solar industry in the future, as highlighted in the ETIP PV White paper on PV Manufacturing in Europe, which was published during the Conference. Concluding the conference, Peter Fath, CEO of RCT Solutions, chair of the ETIP PV Industry Working Group and one of the ETIP PV Conference 2023 Chairs stated that: “The competitiveness cost of PV manufacturing in Europe is an issue that we can overcome. The main challenge is the lack of a well-established value chain in Europe.”

European Energy Social Innovation Platform

The SocialRES project has been successfully completed and transferred its legacy to the European Energy Social Innovation Platform! The platform aims to enable professionals to gather information and knowledge about social innovations for the renewable energy sector, to share good practices and new resources and work collaboratively. Follow LinkedIn and Twitter page for the most relevant and up-to-date resources and news on social innovation and citizen engagement!

SERENDI-PV: New Scientific Publications

New scientific publications are available on SERENDI-PV website! Project partners dive into solar energy research and analyze main KPIs for PV systems, develops monitoring solutions, improves the lifetime, reliability, performance & profitability of PV generation and increases the penetration of PV generation in the European grid with improved stability.

IWG5: Study Tour

Results of the BIPVBOOST project available

Our project is in its final stage, so we would like to invite you to learn more about its results and innovations, categorized in four main areas:
Also, you can learn more about our innovations by watching our webinars, reading our public reports or by visiting our media corner where you will find all presentations given by the consortium members.

We invite you to watch our BIPVBOOST project Demonstration Sites video.

We had our last project meeting in Brussels, where we visited the demonstration site located in Mons (Belgium)

Follow the IBC4EU channels

The IBC4EU project will develop cost effective and sustainable bifacial interdigitated back contact (IBC) solar cell and module technology on pilot line level. We would like to invite you to visit our website and to learn more this new project and also to follow us on social media, LinkedIn and Twitter so you don’t miss anything!

We had our 6M meeting in Mikkeli, Finland.

HYPOSO Study Tour

In the last month of the HYPOSO project, one of the project highlights was organised, the HYPOSO Study Tour.  This tour was actually a business cooperation study tour for African and Latin American stakeholders, with the aim of bringing together potential business partners from there with the European hydropower industry.

The Study Tour lasted eleven days, from 3 to 13 May, 2023, and took place in four European countries: Germany, Austria, Italy and the Netherlands. Eight site visits at hydropower plants were organised (Jochenstein, Vöcklabruck, Obervellach II, St. Anton, Wiesen, Sellrain, Fotsch, Möhne) as well as nine visits at headquarters or production facilities of hydropower equipment producers (Global Hydro, Voith Hydro, Gugler Water Turbines, Andritz Hydro, Braun Maschinenfabrik, Troyer, Wild Metal, TRM Tiroler Rohre GmbH, Ossberger). The group stayed in nine cities and travelled around 2,500 kilometres. The organisers hosted 24 guests from Cameroon (6 participants), Uganda (5 participants), Bolivia (6 participants), Ecuador (2 participants) and Colombia (5 participants). All of them were directly connected with the hydropower sector in the target countries, in positions of presidents or general directors of hydropower plants operator companies, HYPOSO pilot sites owners, project developers, general managers or projects managers, lord mayors, civil engineers and energy planning specialists.
