4th European Conference PV-Hybrid and Mini-Grid 2008 - OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies (Ed.)

About the book:

The OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies, organized the 4th European Conference PV-Hybrid and Mini-Grid in Glyfada, Greece, from 29th until 30th of May 2008. The OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies, belongs to the most respected organizers of symposia, seminares and conferences within the area of renewable energies. The actual proceedings include very interesting manuscripts and poster-presentations. The Chairman of the Conference was Prof. Dr. Nikos Hatziargyriou, National Technical University of Athen, Greece. For it is rather difficult to give a summary of all single contributions, we here only present the main points:
