Chair/Organizer: Nancy Heagel, Marta Victoria
Room 445

In countries accounting for 82% of the global electricity generation, photovoltaics and wind are already the cheapest source of electricity. It took 66 years until 2022 to install 1 TW of solar photovoltaic systems. However, the second TW will be reached in 2024 and an annual TW market will be reality before the end of the decade. This has a significant impact not only for the electricity system, but for our global energy supply as well. This Sub-Area addresses which technologies and concepts are available and most beneficial for the challenges of the energy transition.
