The Management Committee of the newly approved COST Action “PEARL PV” (Performance and Reliability of Photovoltaic Systems: Evaluations of Large-Scale Monitoring Data) has recently met in Brussels for the second time, in order to discuss the action’s progress and the next steps with regard to the short-term scientific missions, the work plan of the various working groups and other important matters. In addition, a Valorisation Panel Meeting was organised with an aim to discuss the industry’s expectations and obtain feedback directly from stakeholders.
Prior to the MC meeting and the Valorisation Panel Meeting both held on the 23rd of January 2018, parallel workshops were successfully organised on the 22nd of January 2018, during which work group leaders and participants discussed the work plan and tasks of the working groups and defined the key research topics. A plenary meeting also took place where the findings from the parallel workshops were presented.
Pearl PV like every Cost Action is a bottom-up science and technology network, open to researchers and stakeholders with a duration of four years. In the framework of this Action, a range of networking tools will be actively utilised, such as workshops, conferences, training schools, short-term scientific missions (STSMs), and dissemination activities. Following the Action’s approval, the first MC meeting was successfully held in Brussels on the 5th October 2017.
