Abstract

The Commission has been supporting demonstration projects in the PV sector for more than 20 years, and in recent years has been giving particular attention to 2nd generation grid connected PV systems in buildings, with a view to achieving cost reductions and building market confidence. Future demonstration priorities should be focused on the development and demonstration of 3rd generation PV systems, which are substantially cheaper and fully able to complete with other sources of renewable electricity.
