The Solar Energy Programme, with the achievements obtained during 1982 and the previous years, is confirming the central role of the JRC in support to the Commission programmes and EC activities oriented to an extended application of efficient and low cost ""solar technologies"". This confirmation is referring to the main orientation of the Solar Energy Programme: a contribution to (i) definition of test methodologies (ii) execution of performance measurements (iii) research on durability and reliability. These activities are related both the thermal converters and photovoltaic converters, and concerning components and systems. As a general conclusion it can be said that during 1982, the third year of the 1980 - 1983 programme, the Solar Energy Programme at Ispra reached the full level of operation and it is now available, for the Commission and the European Community, a complete set of installation and investments for the evaluation of solar energy technologies and systems, and the related competences.
