Solar Energy: Capturing the benefits of photovoltaics

Details

Publication date
20 August 2013

Description

Photovoltaic (PV) modules convert photons from the sun’s rays into electricity, which can either be stored or fed into the electricity grid. It is a very promising technological option to shift towards a decarbonised energy supply. With its European Solar Test Installation (ESTI), the JRC assesses the performance of new and improved photovoltaic devices and performs pre-normative research. (June 2013)
