MetaPV is the world’s first project to show on a large scale and in historically grown distribution networks how photovoltaics can support the grid actively. It shows that intelligent control of photovoltaic inverters can increase the capacity of a network for hosting distributed generation by 50%. This is possible at less than 10% of the costs of classical grid reinforcement. The report provides caveats, guidelines and recommendations on how this can be done in practice.

On March 18th, 2014 the first 100% Electric Truck in Belgium was commissioned for operation. Triphase, E-Trucks Europe and Flander’s Drive have successfully fulfilled the development and operational requirements of this innovative concept. Triphase’s involvement include the supply, assembly and configuration an eV6-SKAI™ motor drive, an EVO AFM-240 PMSM motor and an eVSync™ enhanced gearbox control for electric motorization
