Renewable Energy Deployment & Integration

This stream runs in parallel with the other streams as part of the APSRC. Registration for this stream allows full access to all Conference streams and side events.

This stream covers the following topics. 

  • Integration into electricity networks, as well as system-level integration
  • Renewables market design, policy and regulation (trading and tariffs)
  • Forecasting and resource assessment
  • Field experience, performance, yield and reliability
  • Battery performance and integration
  • EVs and low emissions transport
  • Off grid, fringe of grid, islands and remote regions
  • Solar for Industrial Processes
  • Solar Energy in the Water industry
  • PV forecasting and firm power
  • Vehicle Integrated PV
  • Community batteries and community microgrid
  • Agri-PV

This stream covers a wide range of topics, all related to the next steps beyond production of PV modules. It does not include solar energy in the Built environment, which is covered in the Solar Building and Solar Heating and Cooling stream. With solar PV being an integral part of Distributed Energy Resources, this stream includes other technologies such as batteries and even electric vehicles. It includes applications such as off-grid and remote regions, as well as agrivoltaics and industrial applications. It also includes the policy and regulatory framework within which all these operate, as well as the use of forecasting and resource assessment, which then leads into assessing performance and reliability.
