Webinar : Photovoltaic Market and Industry Trends 2020

Next thursday, Copper Alliance & IEA PVPS will organise together a webinar that will address the key drivers of the PV market and industry in the coming years based on the Trends 2020.

There are some seats left !

So, don't hesitate to register (see below)


Gaëtan Masson, Operating Agent of IEA PVPS Task 1, will look at the past developments and future scenarios, from a global market development point of view to some key price evolution features. From social aspects of PV, collective and decentralised self-consumption policies to floating PV, this webinar will browse the global landscape of PV development.

Izumi Kaizuka, deputy chair of the IEA PVPS Task 1, will present the trends of the PV Industry. The production of polysilicon, ingots, wafers, PV cells and modules have been growing with the growth of the PV market. The gap between manufacturing capacity of PV module and the demand contributed to the recent price reduction thus resulted in lower LCOE of PV power. Across the value chain, the PV upstream sector makes efforts to improve efficiency, output and reliability. Further progress of cost reduction is expected. In the downstream sector, players are also applying various methods to reduce LCOE.


Speakers : 

  • Gaëtan Masson (Becquerel Institute)
  • Izumi Kaizuka (RTS)

Date : 04 February 2021
Time : 12:00 CET to 13:15CET


New Reports from Performance, Operation and Reliability of Photovoltaic Systems Task

Climatic Rating of Photovoltaic Modules

As a whole, this report is a compendium of the current status of energy rating, ranging from input data on technologies (whether measured in the laboratory or outdoors) and on climate, to the description and evaluation of existing methods (IEC 61853 and from other solar re-search institutes). It also opens the discussion on the application of these methods in new technologies such as bifacial modules, BIPV and coloured PV, competitions on method uncertainties and evaluation at system level.

Uncertainties in Yield Assessments and PV LCOE

 Yield assessments (YA) and Long-Term Yield Predictions (LTYP) are a prerequisite for business decisions on long term investments into photovoltaic (PV) power plants. Together with cost data (CAPEX, OPEX and discount rate), the output of a YA and LTYP (utilisation rate, performance loss rate and lifetime) provides to the financial investors the parameters needed for the calculation of the Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) and to assess the cash flow model of an investment with relative Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and Net Present Value (NPV).

The International Energy Agency (IEA), founded in 1974, is an autonomous body within the framework of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The Technology Collaboration Program (TCP) was created with a belief that the future of energy security and sustainability starts with global collaboration. The programme is made up of thousands of experts across government, academia, and industry dedicated to advancing common research and the application of specific energy technologies.
