Catch up on the progress of TRUST-PV, a Horizon 2020 funded project

18 July 2023

TRUST-PV project is actively working towards improving the performance and reliability of solar power plants. Powered by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, TRUST-PV is supporting the development of O&M-friendly and grid-friendly solar PV components and solutions in large portfolios of distributed and utility scale PV.

The project has been active within the solar industry for over 3 years now, delivering key milestones thanks to the hard work of TRUST-PV’s partners. As a communications partner, SolarPower Europe is happy to report on TRUST-PV’s recent activity:

Intersolar Europe 2023 has once again proved to be a fruitful event for TRUSTPV.

During the Conference, TRUST-PV participated in the Utility-Scale Solar Power II: Quality, Reliability & Performance session where EURAC Research discussed the Best Practices for Solar Project Quality & Reliability, with reference to the TRUST-PV project.


Project partners SolarPower Europe, EURAC Research, BayWa r.e., Inaccess, Reuniwatt, PVcase and ABOVE participated in the Intersolar Europe exhibition, where quite a few prolific conversations took place, discussing the contribution of TRUST-PV towards the performance and reliability of solar power plants.


New report published by project partner 3E

TRUST-PV’s partners, such as 3E, Above, Statkraft, EURAC Research, and more, are releasing key publications to support the sector, covering key results achieved by the project. For example, the project’s partner 3E published a report on the Context-Sensitive PB Plant Component Benchmarking Based on Monitoring Data. 


The report provides an overview of a context-sensitive benchmarking exercise for several key performance indicators (KPIs) across various regions and climatic zones. It also examines the evolution of these KPIs over time, using operational data from 65 inverter manufacturers and 200 PV manufacturers.


The report uses operational data from:

A portfolio of

6.5 GW

A total of

5K PV plants

A total of

100K inverters

The primary goal of this report is to support stakeholders in making informed technical decisions.
