GRECO

Fostering a Next GeneRation of European Photovoltaic SoCiety through Open Science

GRECO was a project that founded on the premise that openness in research and innovation will make it more responsive to societal needs and values.

For six specific technical goals, solutions werde developed in GRECO:

  1. A model for the aging of photovoltaic systems
  2. A repair process for old solar modules
  3. An irrigation system based on photovoltaics
  4. A highly efficient cell with the same price
  5. Micro-CPV-modules for building installations
  6. A photovoltaic heat pump


Project duration: June 2018 – May 2021

RLI was responsible for the following tasks within the project:

  • Analysis of the impact of different photovoltaic technologies (building-integrated micro-CPV versus flat PV modules) in terms of costs and emissions in energy supply scenarios at local and European level
  • Conception and test of an open-peer-review process for the open source models developed in the project
