IEA PVPS Task 14: High Penetration of Photovoltaic systems in electricity grids

This project supports Australian involvement in the International Energy Agency PV Power Systems Program’s Task 14 on High Penetration of PV Systems in Electricity Grids. The Task brings together researchers from the US, Europe, Asia and Australia to address the opportunities and challenges of growing PV deployment on electricity networks. More information on Task 14 can be found here.

An international workshop was held at UNSW in late 2013 that discussed the results to date of the IEA PVPS Task 14: High penetration of PV in electricity grids and considered the findings in the Australian context. The presentations can be found here.

Australian contributions include case studies of high PV penetrations in particular Australian networks, as well as a number of research projects exploring how we can better facilitate PV integration into the Australian electricity industry. The following reports are available:
