New tools make solar power more attractive to business

Monday, 13 June, 2016
EU-funded researchers have developed and patented tools to make photovoltaic generation more reliable, cost-effective and easier to integrate into the grid, providing a boost to solar power SMEs and helping to make sustainable energy more attractive to businesses and end users. Commercial spin-offs are marketing the results in Europe and beyond.

“The main objectives of the PVCROPS project were to improve the performance, reliability and lifetime of photovoltaic (PV) systems, reduce PV energy costs and enhance PV integration into the electrical grid,” explains project coordinator Luis Narvarte from the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain.
