The total installed capacity of photovoltaic systems worldwide has been increased over the last decade by more than 45 times both for environmental reasons and for ensuring energy efficiency and safety, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. In this research project, a system of Smart Photovoltaic Cells will be developed, that will ensure:
- the continuous production of the maximum possible power from the PV system,
- the optimal utilization of the available PV installation surfaces
- the reduction of the installation and maintenance costs of PV systems.
The SmartPV project is co-financed by the European Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, under the call RESEARCH - CREATE - INNOVATE (project code: T1EDK-01485).
