||WebPV is a Spin-off company of IES-UPM
WebPV is a spin-off company created in 2013 by the Photovoltaic Systems Group of Instituto de Energía Solar – Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (IES-UPM), Spain.The research group on photovoltaic systems of UPM was founded in 1985. The group was responsible in 1992 for the design and engineering of the first PV plant in Europe of more than 1 MW (Toledo PV), constructed by Unión Fenosa. Over the last five years, it offered quality control services for more than 60 PV plants in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy, including field testing, commissioning, Certificate of Provisional Acceptance (CPA), Certificate of Final Acceptance (CFA), and the analysis of the power fluctuations induced into the electrical grids by seven PV plants, using operational data monitored at a 1-second frequency. The group also published the results of a review of the performance of more than 10,000 residential PV systems in France and Belgium.WebPV was awarded the first prize of the Startup Company Creation Contest of UPM for the year 2012.
||WebPV is a startup company of the European research project PV CROPS
WebPV carries on the commercial exploitation of several of the technological advances developed through the European FP7 research project PV CROPS (PhotoVoltaic Cost r€duction, Reliability, Operational performance, Prediction and Simulation). The project aims to improve the performance, reliability and lifetime of PV systems, reduce their cost, and enhance their integration into the electrical grid.
