New Generation Solar Cooling & Heating

IEA PVPS Task 1 & Task 14 Workshop 22/09/2014 Amsterdam

September 22, 2014 - Amsterdam, Netherlands

Self-consumption business models - technical and economic challenges

Jointly with IEA – International Energy Agency PVPS Task 1 / Task 14
While the cost of PV electricity is going down, the question of how business models based on the self-consumption of PV electricity becomes more acute. This workshop will explore the challenges associated with producing electricity with PV for local needs from a technical and economical point of view. An in-depth analysis of the potential and challenges of self-consumption based business models will be discussed, with a focus on storage and “Demand Side Management” through Solar heating and Cooling. In addition, the need to integrate in the electricity system and especially the question of the integration into the distribution grids will be linked to the question of self-consumption.

As an official event of the 29th EU PVSEC, this PVPS Programme Workshop was jointly organised with IEA - International Energy Agency (PVPS and SHC) and EPIA.

Daniel MUGNIER, Operating agent of IEA SHC Task 53 presented the Task and what means PV for Solar Cooling and Heating :
