First European PV GRID Forum

The First European Forum which took place on Tuesday 22 October was the occasion to present and discuss latest findings from the PV GRID Forum and future steps for PV large-scale integration at distribution level in Europe. The Forum presentations focused on technical and regulatory solutions for a smoother integration of high penetration levels of Photovoltaic (PV) into the grid from both the PV system owners' and the Distribution System Operators' (DSOs) perspective. Several specific country case studies were presented as well as preliminary recommendations.
