Starting from 1st Fabruary 2015 SOPHi@webinar platform has been moved to CHEETAH webinar platform
in date 30/01/2015

Concentrating photovoltaics Technology (CPV)  has become a relevant technology for solar energy conversion. Especially under high concentration, the use of  cost-effective, high-efficiency multi-junction solar cells enable high system efficiencies and a competitive levelized cost of electricity in regions with a large fraction of direct irradiance. However, the development of this technology requires the utilization of specific indoor/outdoor characterization techniques that are not yet widely known. A review of current hot topics in indoor/outdoor CPV characterization in energy and performance testing will be presented and discussed during this short SOPHIA on line course.

This SOPHi@webinar  event is based as the previous one, on three presentations already  offered during 2nd SOPHIA BIPV workshop and it  will further deepen on PV landscape, vertical Façade integration and   energy performance modelling

The integration of Photovoltaic elements into the building, the so called ‚BIPV’ is even today - after the solar revolution has started off worldwide - a huge challenge.

BIPV might see a new era of success in the developing super mass markets for PV as solar energy will become the ‘largest source of electricity worldwide’

The webinar based on three presentations of 2nd SOPHIA BIPV workshop presents different point of views of an PV Technology Research association representative, an architect and a Researcher on Building Integrated PV topic, considering market situation, countries regulations, R&D and architecture features.

The webinar has been organised within the framework of 7FP-SOPHIA Research Infrastructure SOPi@Webinar, 7FP-CHEETAH  and EERA European Energy Research Alliance

in date 14/06/2013

The webinar offers comprehensive information on different aspects on Uncertainty Estimations of PV Outdoor Measurements to properly estimate energy yield.
