IEA PVPS Task 13: Analysis of Long-Term Performance of PV Systems

This IEA PVPS Task 13 report investigates data supplied from installed operating PV plants in different countries in order to improve understanding of efficiency and reliability issues of current state-of-the-art PV systems. With TNC Consulting (Th. Nordmann, L. Clavadetscher) as main-author!

International Energy Agency; Report on cost and performance trends in photovoltaic systems

December 2007, Erlenbach, Switzerland

The IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) is one of the collaborative R & D Agreements established within the IEA, and since its establishment in 1993, the PVPS participants have been conducting a variety of joint projects in the application of photovoltaic conversion of solar energy into electricity. This technical report has been prepared under the supervision of PVPS Task 2 by: Luzi Clavadetscher, Thomas Nordmann; This report gives an overview of the system costs of PV systems, based on data collected as part of the IEA PVPS Task 2 Economic Survey and of the operational performance, based on data from the IEA PVPS Performance Database [1]. The report shows the development of the actual PV system cost and the performance over time for grid-connected PV systems built between 1991 and 2005. The results for the grid-connected PV systems investigated show a trend towards lower system cost and increased performance over this period.

Progress in Photovoltaics: Research and Applications

2004 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

PV on noise barriers has been around for 14 years. During this time considerable progress has been achieved not only on the PV module technology, but also in the construction of photovoltaic noise barriers (PVNB). The first plant was built in Switzerland in 1989; at present there are numerous plants with a total documented power of about 850 kWp in operation in Europe. This paper gives a short overview on the progress and state of the art of PVNB in Europe.
