ETIP PV, the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics, is set to make a significant presence at the upcoming European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EUPVSEC) in Lisbon from 18th to 22nd September 2023. The platform will host two parallel events in Room 5B (Auditorium 5), each focusing on critical aspects of the photovoltaic (PV) digitalization.
On 21st September, from 17:00 to 18:00, the ETIP PV parallel event titled "Data, AI, IoT: Opportunities and Challenges for PV Innovation" will take place. This event aims to facilitate round table discussions centered around the Digital PV challenges laid out in the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for Photovoltaics.
The SRIA, which can be found on the ETIP PV website (PUBLIC CONSULTATION - ETIP PV (etip-pv.eu)) serves as a blueprint for guiding research and innovation efforts in the PV sector. By addressing the challenges outlined in the SRIA, industry experts and stakeholders will engage in fruitful conversations to further advance photovoltaic technology. The discussions during this parallel event will focus on the opportunities and challenges that arise from the utilization of data, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT) in PV innovation.
In addition to the parallel event on the 21st, ETIP PV will co-organize another parallel event on 20th September, from 15:15 to 18:30. This event "Reliable and friendly Integration of next-generation PV plants in EU Grids", held in collaboration with the EU projects Serendi-PV and Trust-PV, will discuss the topic of integrating next-generation PV plants into European grids reliably and efficiently.
With the increasing adoption of renewable energy sources, such as PV, the reliable integration of these systems into existing grids has become crucial. The parallel event will address the challenges and opportunities associated with this integration process, showcasing the latest advancements and technologies developed by the three projects. Attendees can expect a comprehensive discussion on the steps needed to achieve a reliable and friendly integration of next-generation PV plants into the European Union grid.
