IFE researchers making an impact at EUPVSEC 2021

This year IFE researchers gave 11 presentations, a record high number, covering key fields in current PV science and technology. EUPVSEC is the biggest and most important solar power conference in Europe, organized for the 38th time and welcoming more than 1300 participants.

The topics covered by the IFE presenters included Building-Integrated PV, floating PV, performance, degradation operations and maintenance of PV power plants, advanced thermo-mechanical modeling, as well as sector coupling in road transport supported by PV.

At IFE we are especially proud to be able to join forces between our departments in the mission to do research in solar power and development, and to share our findings and results to the wider community. PV power is on the verge of becoming the most important power source in the world. IFE will continue to resolve challenges, collaborate and innovate in order to accelerate the green shift.
