TRUSTPV: A 4-year research project with over 12 million euro in grant value from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, TRUSTPV will improve the performance and reliability of solar power plants. To do so, the project will support the development of O&M-friendly and grid-friendly solar PV components and solutions in large portfolios of distributed and utility scale PV. The TRUSTPV innovations will be tested and demonstrated from fab to field, with all data gathered along the value chain flowing into a decision support system platform that uses AI and is based on and beyond Industry 4.0 concepts. The project is industrially driven, gathering 20 organisations from across the entire solar PV value chain.

TRUSTPV Proudly powered by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.

Entering a new era for solar photovoltaics as an intelligent and flexible grid entity of providing both clean energy and grid support services (Solar 3.0 concepts), increases the potential of the technology but at the same time renders enormous challenges. The experience and fusion of expertise gained through our participation to the Trust PV project provides the necessary blend for strengthening FOSS research in new smart domains that the PV sector is entering. To this end, the demonstration of an innovative high performing and flexible commercial scale PV power plant is invaluable for Cyprus, which is an islanded system that is expected to have high shares of PV in the future.

TRUST-PV will allow BayWa r.e. to act as the bridge between the development phases and the proof of concept, going all the way until economic assessment and commercial deployment of innovative solutions in the O&M sector, such as the progressive repowering of aged PV plant.

IMEC is looking forward to leapfrogging several innovations in module materials, technology and PV system yield and reliability modelling into next generation products. In TRUST-PV, we will validate and further develop these innovations with direct feedback from industry leaders from the entire PV system value chain.
