Task 1: Strategic PV Analysis & Outreach (previously Exchange and Dissemination of Information on Photovoltaic Power Systems)

The APVI is actively involved in this task, and each year produces the ‘PV in Australia’ report which can be accessed here.

The broad objective of Task 1 is to promote and facilitate the exchange and dissemination of information on the technical, economic, environmental and social aspects of PV power systems. All 23 countries participating in the PVPS Program are members of Task 1.

Task 1 activities focus on development of quality information products and effective communication mechanisms in support of the PVPS objectives. Task 1 has also identified a specific goal of providing assistance to policy makers and others by actively identifying market support solutions that can last for a decade, and provide win/win/win scenarios (for customers/investors, electricity utilities and governments). In parallel, Task 1 progresses ideas for future PVPS work arising from the PVPS strategy development process – in particular, enhancing the understanding of the value of PV in electricity markets, and elaborating the environmental aspects of PV.

A published report, Trends in Photovoltaic Applications, is compiled from the National Survey Reports (NSRs) produced annually by all countries participating in the IEA PVPS Program.
