This paper presents the approach and objectives of the new IEA-PVPS1 [1] Task 14 on “High Penetration PV in Electricity Grids” which aims at reducing the technical barriers to achieving high PV penetration levels and thus promoting the use of grid connected PV as an important source in electric power systems. Task 14 will focus on working with utilities, industry, and other stakeholders to develop the technologies and methods enabling the widespread deployment of distributed PV technologies into the electricity grids. Using the highly accepted dissemination tools of IEA PVPS easy access to the main findings of the work is expected to mitigate concerns of high penetration PV to the benefit of a large number of countries.
