THINKPV

The European Union policy for climate and energy imposes significant targets for a high integration of renewable energy sources in the period from 2020 to 2030. System operators have to deal with operational flexibility to respond to variability and to uncertainty of the renewable generation, ensuring the network reliability and security. While significant efforts have been made into the developing accurate forecasts, much work remains to integrate the forecasting in the electric system operations. The successful incorporation of forecasts into grid operation emerges as an important challenge. Accurate photovoltaic (PV) generation forecasts are major themes of the research roadmap of many international task forces, as Smart Grids SRA 2035 to support the flexibility increasing of the power systems. In this context, the project aims to support large scale integration of PV systems in countries with a high solar resource and a significant potential of small capacity PV systems such as Greece. The Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS) is the most important Hellenic research institute, committed to support Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network Operator S.A. (HENDO) that is dealing with a radical modernization of the existing network. The THINKPV project encourages the ICCS and its industrial partners to facilitate PV grid integration by the development of a probabilistic forecasting system based on machine learning, taking advantage of data that can be measured in the distribution network, in order to improve forecast accuracy compared to the state of art. The model will be assembled into a solar power forecasting system that will be operational at the Electric Energy Systems Laboratory (EESL) of the ICCS to operate directly with tools for simulating power system operations. A prototype of operational solar forecasting systems will be demonstrated for HENDO, providing also a training program for its efficiency and correct application.

Rolling Solar

The Rolling Solar project aims to catalyze a lasting cross border collaboration between industry, research and stakeholders on photovoltaics, materials, manufacturing, installation, grid, and road infrastructure. This collaboration includes technology development, dissemination and validation of knowledge. Goal is to technically enable local manufacturers and building and construction companies to realize cost effective integration of long lengths of solar cell materials into public infrastructure. As a result, large scale durable electricity generation without additional land use will be enabled close to point of use. For example, PV integrated in all 35,000 km of Dutch bicycle road would generate 15 TWh of electricity per year, equivalent to a CO2 reduction in the order of 5 million tonnes per year.

SUCCESS - Sequential, high Uniformity, Cost Competitive Elemental Selenization and Sulphurization for CIGSSe2

Thin-film photovoltaic CIGS technology has seen considerable growth of manufacturing capacity in recent years. The environmental impact, especially the CO2 footprint of CIGS thin-film panels shows great advantages compared to other solar technologies. CIGS panels show good performance in diffuse light conditions and at high temperatures, and are tolerant to partial shading. Additionally, the aesthetic qualities and the possibility of custom colors makes CIGS a superior PV technology for the application in building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), e.g. in solar façades.The fabrication process of the CIGS semiconductor layer is the key driver for both, the further increase of efficiency, and the reduction of manufacturing cost of CIGS solar modules. Based on the European energy research program SOLAR-ERA.NET, the solar companies Smit Thermal Solutions and AVANCIS started a European collaboration with the leading research institutes Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), CNRS (Institut des Matériaux Jean Rouxel, Nantes) and TNO/Solliance with the new project ‘Sequential, High Uniformity, Cost Competitive Elemental Selenization and Sulfurization for CIGSSe2’, called SUCCESS. The aim of SUCCESS is the combination of a further cost-optimized CIGS processing and the high efficiencies reached with heavy alkali post-deposition treatment (PDT). An efficiency of more than 20% is finally targeted for 30x30cm2 AVANCIS’ modules.The non-vacuum Smit Thermal Solutions in-line selenization equipment provides a high degree of freedom in the CIGS semiconductor fabrication enabling further cost reduction at high efficiency levels. Using Smit Thermal Solutions prototype equipment, notable efficiencies have already been reached by TNO/Solliance and HZB at cell level. As first steps in scaling-up, the homogeneity of the selenization process in the Smit Thermal Solutions equipment will be improved and it will be adapted for the 30x30cm2 AVANCIS R&D platform.During the last three years, the conversion efficiency of CIGS record cells has been increased from 20.5% to 23.35% by using controlled PDT of the absorber layer with heavy alkali metals. Typically, these records are achieved with small cells measuring 1x1cm². The consortium aims to systematically investigate the impact of the heavy alkali doping in the absorber formation process as well as by PDT of the absorber and to ultimately apply this technology to large-area module production processes with a Cd-free buffer process.

CIRCUSOL

Solar power generates nearly 4% (and still growing) of Europe’s electricity demand. In 2021, the 200 GW of capacity installed in Europe will result in saving of 219 million CO2 tons/year. By 2030, 8 mill tons of PV panels are expected.

Resource efficiency is a critical success factor for the solar power sustainable growth. Performance-based, third-party ownership Product-Service System (PSS) has been widely seen as a key circular economic model to stimulate resource efficiency and reduce waste generation. CIRCUSOL aims to establish solar power as a spearhead sector to demonstrate a path driven by PSS business models towards a circular economy in Europe.
Through a co-creative approach with end-users and the entire value chain, CIRCUSOL will develop two main blocks of a circular PSS model: circular product management with re-use/refurbish/remanufacture (“second-life”) paths in addition to recycling, and value-added new product-services for residential, commercial and utility end-users. Five large-scale, real-life demonstrators will be set up in these 3 market segments, in 3 European countries (FR, BE and CH) to validate market acceptance, business viability and resource efficiency benefits.

CIRCUSOL will deliver tangible innovation for the solar power industry with market-validated PSS business models, 2nd-life PV/battery labelling/certification protocols and cost/application analysis, and an info-sharing ICT platform. The results will be exploited in FR, BE and CH and prepared for replication in Europe (Letters of Support of stakeholders attached). CIRCUSOL will also deliver verified circular business innovation methodologies for broader use by other industries, sustainability professionals and academia; plus evidence-based knowledge in circular economy implementation for policy makers. All together, CIRCUSOL will contribute to a more resource efficient Europe, while reducing GHG emissions and creating new business opportunities and jobs.

PUTTING OPEN SCIENCE INTO ACTION IN AN ENGINEERING PROJECT

Six products that will make a difference

Throughout the project, researchers participating in GRECO will design six products.

The first one is an in-situ repairing methodology that can save the cost of replacing defective modules in a PV installation while supporting the idea of Circular Economy. Through a collaborative process where we will identify and collect defective modules from the civil society and researchers from different Organizations will develop a methodology that will be tested and analyzed by installers from three countries. A video-tutorial will be published to give free access to anyone interested in the procedure.

The second one is an ageing model for PV modules to improve the estimation of energy production of PV plants and reduce the uncertainty on the estimations that are made by financial agencies when considering investments on this type of projects. To that extent, the project will call to the collaboration of European installations’ owners to access and measure their plants. Researchers will analyze these data and compare them with that obtained in the last decade, to produce the most precise model possible.

A third product targets to develop a more sustainable solution for irrigation, pursuing a reduction of costs and a major use of renewable energy in agriculture. The major innovation of GRECO is that the solution is not already agreed. During the project, both Governments and Irrigators from the Euro-Mediterranean area in an user-centered Open Innovation process will define the current needs of the irrigators and Governments and together the researchers of GRECO will co-design a product that meets their demands.

The three remaining products are devoted to improve the penetration of photovoltaic energy into the electric system, taking advantage of its decentralized character. GRECO will develop cheaper and more efficient solar cells, a novel system of modules able to provide energy to buildings up to 8 stores, and improved PV heat-pump systems as enablers of a major use of renewable sources in the daily-life. To carry out these investigations the Consortium will carry out consultations through mobilization and Mutual Learning processes with different relevant players in six different countries: Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria, Germany, United Kingdom and Brazil to define barriers and facilitators to the use of those products and consequently, define proper roadmaps for a better alignment of the technology with the society. Moreover, the project is expected to co-design with third parties a Citizen Science Initiative that allow people from around the world to contribute with their data to foster the studies and investigations of the photovoltaic community.

But perhaps the product with the greatest impact expected from the project will be the guide for researchers that the project will publish in the summer of 2020, where we explain to the scientific community how to implement the concepts of RRI and Open Science in research projects.

All products of GRECO will follow Open Science practices and several actions have been designed to contribute to the openness of our results. Researchers will adopt not only Open Access and Open Data policies, but also will explore the implementation of Open Notebooks in research institutions or the use of video-tutorials as a double resource: educational and metadata.

APOLO SmArt Designed Full Printed Flexible RObust Efficient Organic HaLide PerOvskite solar cells

APOLO consortium will surpass the barriers for market deployment by providing flexible and stable perovskite solar cells using scalable and low cost processes, reducing amount of toxic materials tackle the challenges to provide market niches solutions. APOLO developments will ensure to enhance the TRL of perovskite PV technology. APOLO consortium will work on advanced materials, from cell to encapsulant to develop flexible PSC, fully printable, with efficiency of 22% with at least 80% of initial performance after relevant accelerated test from standards.

APOLO solutions will allow the development of a totally new product by integrating the modules into the architecture design of buildings. New applications of this technology open doors to other markets apart from BIPV, such as automotive, textile, etc.

PSC toxicity is considered to be negligible since the amount of lead in perovskite layer is not so relevant if it is compared against Si technology, nevertheless, the solvent toxicity should be taken in account in order to benefit industrialization of perovskite PV products.

1500-SIC - Develop a new photovoltaic Inverter with SiC full power operation at 1500V

The aim of 1500-SIC is to develop enabling power electronics solutions capable of delivering nominal power at 1500V with very high efficiency and high volumetric power density at competitive cost
Photovoltaic (PV) energy is experiencing significant cost reduction over the last years. Lately, the bias voltage of photovoltaic panels has risen from 1000V to 1500V, leading to a significant reduction of the Balance of Plant cost. In order to improve the
evelized Cost of Energy, manufacturers are increasing the installed DC power of PV panels for a given nominal AC power of the inverter (so-called capacity factor) from 1.2-1.3 to higher values. This results in a larger voltage at the maximum power point of the PV panel. As a consequence, conventional power electronics solutions rated at 1700V maximum voltage are not suitable. This is because they are typically designed to deliver nominal power below approximately 1300V, but increasing the capacity factor leads to higher maximum power point voltage. Therefore, new solutions are required in order to deliver rated power near 1500V.

NEXT-FOIL - Next generation conductive solar foil for flexible photovoltaics

Next generation photovoltaics (PV), based on organic, inorganic or hybrid perovskite absorbers, can be fabricated as thin, lightweight and flexible modules. This makes them attractive for integration in building façades and consumer products. These PV technologies rely on substrates coated with a transparent electrode, which is required to have high transparency (>85%) combined with low sheet resistance (<20 Ω/sq). ITO (indium-tin-oxide) is by far the most commonly used transparent electrode, despite its high cost, as well as its poor mechanical stability and low figureof-merit when applied on flexible substrates likePET.
NEXT-FOIL develops an alternative to ITO-coated PET, based on dielectric/metal/dielectric (DMD) multilayers, sputtered at deposition rates compatible to high-throughput, industrial production

ENMESH - ENabling Micro-ConcEntrator PhotovoltaicS with Novel Interconnection MetHods

The Swiss company Insolight is developing a patented PV module that promises a reduction in LCOE for roof-based solar from 0.16€/kWh to 0.011€/kWh. The system uses an array of microsolar cells with optics and integrated microtracking to produce a low-profile rooftop-compatible solar system with an independently demonstrated efficiency of over 36%, a 100% efficiency gain over cSi. This high efficiency is made possible through the use of advanced multi-junction cells under concentrated light, a technology known as CPV. Specifically, the product represents one of the first commercial examples of micro-CPV (μCPV), wherein the cells are 1mm2 in size or less. μCPV increases performance (due to reduced cell operating temperature, higher optical efficiency and lower series resistance losses) and lowers costs. Insolight innovation has further improved the μCPV concept by embedding sun tracking internally in a 50mm-thick panel, enabling roof-top or BIPV installations and avoiding bulky and expensive trackers. An outstanding technological challenge in μCPV is the need to use massive cell interconnection processes due to the large number of micro-cells involved, 5000 cells/m2 for the Insolight module. The current state of the art is wire bonding, however this inherently serial process is prohibitive for thousands of cells. The Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, in collaboration with Dycotec Materials Ltd, offer an innovative cell interconnection process involving direct printing of ultra-durable nano-particle coatings systems to allow the massively parallel connection of solar cells in a cost-effective high volume roll-to-roll or sheet fed printing process, paving the way for the low-cost manufacture of μCPV

DEFIER 2

The project DEFIER (a French word meaning «to challenge ») stands for Développements Expérimentaux de Films Innovants pour les Energies Renouvelables, translated in English as Experimental developments of innovative films for renewable energies. More precisely it is devoted to the solar cells and energy storage. Energy is one of the main research topic in the IMN laboratory, implying more than one half of the researchers. It is also an important field of development of the ARMOR company, with a large part of investments. IMN provides its scientific knowledge, its expertise in elaboration and characterization of materials. ARMOR is a world leader in ink formulation and thermal printing. The collaboration opens new opportunities for the development and use of new materials coming from IMN and allows access to industrial processes.
During the first years of the Joint Laboratory, strategies and views on R&D have been combined. The efficiency of the new organization has been proved by important scientific and technological progress, mainly in the performances of current collectors for batteries and transparent conductors for organic solar cells. It allows also the use of vapor phase techniques for thin films in these cells. A common equipment has been installed for battery preparation and testing. Fruitful discussions opened the roadmap to basic research on thin films technology and organic batteries. Nevertheless, in the coming 18 months, the main part of the power for the reinforcement of the Joint Laboratory will be devoted the current collectors and transparent conductors.

ESPOIR2

In the last ten years, we have witnessed one of the most impressive evolutions in the history of photovoltaics: the rise of perovskite solar cells with power conversion efficiency rising from 2% in 2006 to higher than 22 % in mid-2016 for single junction devices. Perovskite solar cell is thus becoming a promising emerging technology. In this context, production cost, device stability, leading to durability and long product’s life, are considered as the key performance parameters. However, the perovskite materials are very sensitive to corrosion and humidity, which impedes the commercial development in the long run and becomes one of the main issues needing to be solved urgently. As a solution at this respect, the ESPOIR2 project is oriented toward designing and tailoring nanographenes as new organic hole transporting materials. Nanographenes are designed to work as high efficient additive-free non-corrosive hole conductors, thus enhance the chemical stability of the perovskite layer. ESPOIR2 covers all aspects concerning materials development: from rational molecular design and theoretical simulation, synthesis and characterization to the incorporation of new materials in perovskite solar cells devices. The project is constructed based on a solid French-Korean research partnership led by Dr. Thanh-Tuân Bui (current project coordinator) and Prof. Nam-Gyu Park of Sungkyunkwan University, world-leading scientist in the perovskite solar cell fields. ESPOIR2 is organized in 4 dependent and strongly interactive work packages: WP0 (project management), WP1: nanographene molecular engineering and syntheis, WP2: nanographene materials advanced characterization, WP3: incorporation of nanographene in perovskite photovoltaic devices and device long-term stability investigation. The WP1 and WP2 will be realized within the Laboratory of Physicochemistry of Polymers and Interfaces of the University of Cery-Pontoise (France). The WP3 will be done at Sungkyunkwan University (South Korea) and partially at the University of Cergy-Pontoise.
