EDP Centre for New
Energy Technologies (EDP CNET)
EDP CNET is a subsidiary of the EDP Group with the mission to create value through collaborative R&D in the energy sector. EDP CNET is entirely committed to research and development with a strong focus in technology demonstration projects. EDP CNET will be the coordinator of the project, being the end user of the developed solutions and owner and operator of several PV farms in Europe and in the United States. EDP CNET will have a strong focus on the overall project management, but also on the communication, dissemination and exploitation activities. EDP will also lead the validation activities, providing both test sites and datasets from existing PV farms for the validation of the AI4PV solutions.
