1. In the sixth REMC meeting held on 2019-11-18 and 2019-1-19 in Feldkirch, Austria, following the recommendations and discussions related to REMC/370A/R have concluded in decisions 10/2019 and 12/2019 called for establishing a task force “OD” and a separate task force “Rating” for the PV sector:
Decision 10/2019: The REMC approved the creation of a TF “PV Rating System” and assigned Thomas Sauer as the Convenor of that TF, as per the revised recommendation A.7.2 from REMC/370A/R.
Decision 12/2019: The REMC approved the modified recommendation A.2 from REMC/370A/R to establish a TF “PV Operational Documents” with the mission to reform the PV OD structure and content. The Secretariat will send out a call for Convenor and Members.
Prior to an inaugural meeting on 2 July 2020, TF 5 was erroneously formed as joint task force “OD & Rating”. This error has now been corrected by CO by way of establishing TF 5 “PV Operational Documents” and TF 6 “PV Rating System”. The inaugural meeting on 2 July 2020 is therefore to be considered a joint inaugural task force meeting of TF 5 and TF 6. Both, TF 5 and TF 6 have again convened on 16 July 2020, this time still in a combined sequential session to unwind the previously agreed course of actions, TOR, goals etc. Future meetings will take place separately.
2. As part of correcting the error outlined above, the proposed terms of reference (ToR) outlined in REMC/472/DV has been withdrawn. Unanimously, the participating TF 5 and 6 members recommend to the REMC the ToR of TF 5 to be established as follows:
• Reform and rework the PV related OD structure and contents by creation of deliverables that are well described and that appear to be acceptable by the PV market.
• Develop guidance for the PV SWG to create new stakeholder groups that are necessary to attract participation to the IECRE PV system.
The REMC Member Bodies to approve the Terms of Reference (ToR) of the Task Force 5 “PV Operational Documents” outlined under point 2 above.
Ballots are to be returned to the IECRE Secretariat (email@example.com) no later than 2020-09-07.
NOTE: USNC/IECRE ballots are to be submitted within thirty days to allow for resolution of any comments prior to the IEC deadline.
