IEA PVPS Task 12: Photovoltaics (PV) Sustainability Activities (working period 2024 - 2027)

Photovoltaics (PV) is a renewable energy source that is an important technology for the energy transition. For this reason, or rather despite this, it is important to consider sustainability aspects in PV as well. End-of-life solutions in particular play an important role, as a strong increase in the number of end-of-life modules is expected in the coming years. Well-functioning recycling methods, repair possibilities or reuse options are of great importance. In this project, these existing methods and capacities in Austria are being researched and published in reports and workshops.

IEA PVPS Task 15: Enabling Framework for the Acceleration of BIPV (Working period 2024 - 2027)

Photovoltaics in general, and thus also the integration of photovoltaics into buildings (BIPV), represents a key component in the energy system of the future. The issues of land consumption for PV and dual use are now making BIPV increasingly important. Solutions for photovoltaics integrated into the building envelope are therefore increasingly becoming the focus of the construction industry.

IEA PVPS Task 14: High Penetration of PV Systems in Electricity Grids (working period 2014 - 2018)

The IEA-PVPS Task 14, led by Austria as Operating Agent, promotes the use of grid connected PV as an important source in electric power systems on a high penetration level where additional efforts may be necessary to integrate the dispersed generators in an optimum manner. In a number of case studies from the participating countries, the challenges and approaches in the field of distribution networks, system management and power electronics components were shown in an international context. The result being elaborate reports with targeted recommendations and required measures to significantly increase the share of photovoltaics in electricity grids.
