The APVI undertakes a range of technical, economic and social research projects on issues relevant to PV. We work with a range of other organisations and all members are encouraged to participate. Our research is used for reports, submissions, seminars, information and education.
One principal research activity of the APVI is to manage Australian participation in the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Program (IEA PVPS, www.iea-pvps.org) and the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Program (IEA SHC, www.iea-shc.org). Work is arranged by activities (Tasks), each with its own commitments of time and resources, and again, all members are invited to participate according to their interests.
Current projects in which the APVI is currently involved are summarised below, with recent projects further down the page.
