Abstract [en]

The need for increased penetration of Renewable Energy Sources and gradual decarbonisation ofthe energy supply chain is well established. Photovoltaic (PV) technology is constantly emerging as a key playerin the green energy generation market. Numerous PV technologies are competing for market share, making thechoice of the most suitable type of equipment essential for the viability of any application. In this study the reallifeperformance of four different PV technologies in actual southern Mediterranean climatic conditions wasexamined. A quality check of the recorded data throughout the monitoring period was carried out, followed bythe calculation of the performance indices proposed by the IEC 61724 international standard on PV systemperformance monitoring and analysis. The outdoor evaluation has shown that grid-connected PV systems canhave a major impact on the future energy mix of countries with high solar resources. The module technology thatwill claim a leading role in the PV industry will depend almost entirely on the future trends of manufacturing andproduction costs as well as, the BoS costs related to the final installation.
