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)

Climate change is expected to have significant impacts on natural resources, the world economy and human well-being in general. It will lead to increased temperatures, changed precipitation patterns, rising sea levels, and increased frequencies of extreme weather events such as floods and droughts. (November 2012)
