5th European Conference PV-Hybrid and Mini-Grid 2010 - OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies (Ed.)

About the book:

The OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies, organized the 5th European Conference PV-Hybrid and Mini-Grid in Tarragona, Spain, from 29th until 30th of April 2010. 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 Chairmen of the Conference were Xavier Vallvé, Trama TechnoAmbiental S.L., Barcelona, Spain, and Gonzalo Piernavieja Izquierdo, Instituto Technológico de Canarias (ITC), Las Palmas, Spain. For it is rather difficult to give a summary of all single contributions, we here only present the main points:
