Digitalisation task force kicks-off with a bang

By Sonia Dunlop, Policy Advisor, SolarPower Europe


There was a real buzz in our Digitalisation & Solar Task Force kick-off meeting on 16 February, where we had 22 people brainstorming and sharing ideas for what we should commit to as an industry, what regulatory changes we still need and what are the opportunities for solar.

We had two really interesting input presentations too from SMA on how solar generation data can be aggregated and provided to TSO network operators to help them forecast supply, and also from NextKraftwerke on the role that solar plays within Virtual Power Plants.

We are now going to have a series of conference calls to drill down on our digitalisation & solar policy asks and 10 commitments on what we pledge to do to help move this transition forward. Please do get in touch if you are interested in getting involved and send us your case studies for inclusion in our market opportunities report later this year.
