Summary

New technologies, ground breaking ideas and innovative solutions are buzzwords at Intersolar 2019. The International Energy Agency (IEA) Photovoltaic Power Systems Program (PVPS) Task 13 presents a workshop on PV system performance & reliability as well as operation & maintenance. Session 8 will address the uncertainty surrounding the main parameters affecting yield assessment and long-term yield prediction and their impact on LCOE and selected business models. Degradation factors will be considered in analyzing performance loss rates in large quantities of both high and low-quality data. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and IEA PVPS Task 13.
