Meeting of the TC127 WG5 about the PV installations on Roofs

Jan 31, 2023

Grunde Jomaas and Nik Rus participated in the meeting of the CEN (European Committee for Standardization) TC127 (Technical Committee) WG5 (Work Group) that is entitled 'Photovoltaic fire interactions with roof systems'.

These meetings are CEN's effort to gather information from the research and industry partners about the issues around the fire risks of PV installations on roofs.

This exchange of data and opinions will allow for compiling the guidelines for the new generation of legislative requirements that should enable the achieving of the Green deal goals in a safer manner.

One of the presenters was also Jens Kristensen, Grunde's former PhD student, who presented the findings of his in-depth experimental work about the fire dynamics of the PV + roof systems.
