MCAST Energy successfully organised the first School: Solutions for Photovoltaic Systems Integration
JUMP2Excel project, short for “Joint Universal activities for Mediterranean PV integration Excellence”, has recently completed the first School focusing on the topic of Photovoltaics (PV) integration solutions, hosted by the MCAST Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology. Throughout the School the importance of performance, reliability, high penetration, electricity grid impacts and mitigations and energy storage were highlighted by 14 key international speakers.
The School which is accredited to 9 ECTS at MQF level 7 included site visits to Enemalta PLC and SBE International Conference participation with both participants presentations and a round table forum with six local and international stakeholders’ panel on “The Future of Photovoltaics in the Mediterranean.”
More than 30 researchers, students and other trainees had the opportunity to learn about key topics for state-of-the-art solutions from JUMP2Excel members and external experts through multiple expert lectures, interactive seminars, and practical courses including conference experience and site visits.
The JUMP2Excel: Joint Universal activities for Mediterranean PV integration Excellence project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 810809. JUMP2Excel aims to step up and stimulate scientific excellence and innovation capacity of Malta in the field of PV integration including related technologies such as energy storage and ancillary services and electricity markets. JUMP2Excel activities may be also open to the Maltese research community and the public, free of charge. The next JUMP2Excel Schools are in 23-27 March 2020 and 23-27 November 2020. For further developments, activities and results of the ongoing work of the JUMP2Excel, you may access JUMP2Excel.eu or follow JUMP2Excel in Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Research Gate.
