EMRP project Towards an energy-based parameter for photovoltaic classification (ENG55 PhotoClass) will develop a new classification system of PV devices based on their energy production under different operational conditions. This will provide reliable data, enabling governments and industry to make informed decisions over which PV technologies are most suitable.
This project will hold a workshop hosted by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) and cosponsored by PTB and Sandia National Laboratories. The two-day workshop brings together experts from the project and from the IEA PVPS Task 13 working group to discuss and share new and important technical results and issues related to the modeling and energy rating of PV modules. Invited talks will be given from international experts in the field.
