This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N° 792245.
Concept and Objectives:
SUPER PV is a collaborative European-funded project initiated in 2018 by 26 partners in reaction to this trend. Together, they target a significant LCOE reduction (26%-37%) for European-made PV by adopting a hybrid approach combining technological innovations and data management methods. Introducing superior quality PV systems will create conditions for accelerating large scale deployment in Europe and help EU PV business to regain leadership on world market.
SUPER PV project targets a significant LCOE reduction (26%-37%) for European-made PV by tackling in an integral way three cornerstone steps:
-Module: Introducing and combining five PV module innovations applied to c-Si based bifacial modules and CIGS modules.
-Power electronics: Ensuring higher power output, performance monitoring and data collection on string level, and long-term stability of operation
-System integration / O&M: Developing a new digital and holistic process: PIM (PV information Modelling / Management)
-Development of technology innovations and novel data management tool
-Testing of the innovations and methods in real condicitions
-Evaluation of the effectiveness of the proposed solutions
-The Applied Research Institute for Prospective Technologies (Protech)
Start date: 1 May 2018 - End date: 30 April 2022
