A new joint Task of IEA Technological Collaboration Programmes PVPS (Photovoltaic Power Systems Program) and SolarPACES (Solar Power And Chemical Energy Systems) has started in July 2017 and lasts for three years. The PVPS Task 16 will be led by Jan Remund and the SolarPACES Task V by Lourdes Ramirez. This paper shows the main topics of the work plan. The main goal is to lower uncertainty of resources and forecasts and therefore lower the costs of financing costs as well operation and grid integration costs. The Task has started in June 2017 and will last till May2020. To give an example of the work to be done the discussion about different forecast metrics is shown in this paper.
