Abstract

This book provides an overview of the photovoltaic demonstration projects, which have been supported by the Energy Directorate of the Commission of the European Communities since 1983. It includes reports by each of the contractors who submitted proposals in 1983 and 1984, describing progress with their projects. Summaries of the discussions held at the meeting, which included contractors whose projects were submitted in 1985, are also presented. The different technologies which are being demonstrated concern the modules, the cabling of the array, storage strategy and power conditioning. The various applications include powering of houses, villages, recreation centres, water desalination, radio transmitters, dairy farms, water pumping, and warning systems.
