How to Scale Up Integrated PV Applications in the EU

Thursday, June 15, 2023
03:00 pm - 04:30 pm
Messe München
Hall A2, Booth A2.409

The session is put together by ETIP PV's (The European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics) experts integrated PV working group. Europe is a global leader for dual-use applications of PV like floating PV, agri-PV, and urban integrated PV. However, these innovations still face challenges in large scale deployment, in many cases due to non-technical challenges such as the regulatory framework, lack of standards, or social acceptance.

The session will concentrate on how innovative solutions can drive the success of IPV products in the market. We will hear from experts that are working on innovations to overcome these challenges and ensure the success of sustainable dual use PV systems.
