International Workshop “Third Generation Photovoltaic Systems”

Third Generation Photovoltaic Systems: the option to achieve universal access.

In October 2016, the International Workshop “Third Generation Photovoltaic Systems, an option to achieve universal access” was held in the province of Salta.

The workshop was attended by the most important actors related to the rural electrification topic. From Argentina representatives for the – Renewable Energies Program in Rural Markets – PERMER, various provincial governments, Alimentaris Foundation and officials of the World Bank; from Bolivia representatives for the IDTR – Decentralized Infrastructure for Rural Transformation project-, for the Ministry of Energy and several non-governmental organizations. In consonance, professionals from Peru, Paraguay, Spain and Mexico attended the event.

The meeting was very useful in terms of endorsement of the Third Generation supremacy over Second Generation photovoltaic systems. Also in terms of building a stronger consensus on the need for new and innovative operational models.

The Bolivian Government is working on a plan for a pilot project of 20.000/30.000 households convinced that the use of Third Generation Photovoltaic systems (SPV3G) is definitely the right way to continue moving forward in terms of rural electrification.

PERMER was positively impacted by the outputs shown in the workshop and similarly joined the general consensus on the opportunity offered by the new technologies.
