6th European Conference on PV-Hybrids and Mini-Grids

24 - 26 April 2012, Chambéry, Centre de Congrès - Le Manège, France

The chairmen tandem is happy to invite you to the 6th European Conference on PV-Hybrid Systems and Mini-grids in Chambéry close to the French Alps. This type of systems has been developed to find solutions for the electrification of rural regions and islands and provide an enhanced electricity service.

  5. Design and Simulation
  6. Field Experience

 

25 April 2012: Workshops

Energy Management Workshop and IEA PVPS Planning Workshop "New Task on PV Hybrids and Mini-Grids"

In comparison to village electrification with solar home systems a central PV-Hybrid System reduces the specific electricity cost and enables us to provide a grid equivalent service to the users. This cost reduction is achieved by the aggregation of the expensive system components - the photovoltaic generator, the batteries, and the power converters - which are mutualised.

It is this grid equivalent service which is a crucial condition for starting up economic activities in rural regions, which improve wealth and reduce emigration. This is why PV hybrid systems and Mini-grids are an important tool to achieve the millennium development goals.

The conference location of Chambéry has not been only chosen for its beautiful settings. Just a jump away, there is the solar innovation campus housing INES, the National Institute of Solar Energy, which will be happy to see you for a technical visit!
