EU PVSEC 2020, 7 - 11 September 2020
Event: New Trends in PV Applications: Self-Consumption Business Models in Energy Communities and the Use of Corporate PPAs for Utility-Scale PV New Trends in PV Applications: Self-Consumption Business Models in Energy Communities and the Use of Corporate PPAs for Utility-Scale PV
Organised by: jointly with International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (IEA PVPS) – IEA PVPS Task 1
Type(s) of Access:  Conference Registration
Description: Distributed PV develops through novel self-consumption concepts such as collective and decentralized (virtual) self-consumption and peer-to-peer concepts. The emergence of energy communities offer possibilities to deal with such complex energy systems and favour PV developments.
Centralized PV applications are facing a new reality of becoming competitive with electricity market prices in many locations, and while merchant PV develops, corporate PPAs (which are already rather developed in the Wind industry) reach the PV field.
This event intends to focus on these two aspects of PV development, with a focus on energy communities and novel distributed concepts, and merchant PV and corporate PPAs for centralized PV applications.
