Discussion: What is needed?


As part of the COST action InDust, the H2020 projects SOLWATT (Grant Agreement No: 792103) and WASCOP (Grant Agreement No: 654479), a half-day workshop on "The Effect on Soiling on Solar Energy" will be held.

How does soiling affect photovoltaic and concentrated solar power plants?

- Overview of soiling measurements and modelling
- Microstructural processes of soiling- Energy yield losses due to soiling
- Optimized cleaning strategies

- Share your experiences
- Communicate your requirements
- Connect with others
