Special thanks to the former IEA PVPS Task 7 and to Tjerk Reijenga of BEAR Architecten (NL) who supplies us with information and project and product data from the predecessor database. In the predecessor database information was partly given by IEA-PVPS Task 7 members Daniel Ruoss of Encolo AG (CH) and Ingo Hagemann of Architektenbuero Hagemann (D).
PVdatabase also thanks the participants of the PV-UP-Scale project and the IEA-PVPS Task 10. Information for some new German projects has been given by Ingo Hagemann of Architektenbuero Hagemann, under contract with the Fraunhofer Institut fuer Solare Energiesysteme ISE.
