Abstract: The paper presents the recent developments in the field of solar photovoltaic (PV) applications in Malta. The results obtained from testing the first stand-alone PV demonstration project with battery storage (Jul. '93 - Jun. '95), encouraged the setting-up of the present 1.8 kWp grid-connected PV system, which started operation in May, 1996. Detailed analysis of the stand-alone PV system has already been carried out, though some basic operational and costing results are described here, for general reference. Moreover, a description of the set-up of the 1.8 kWp roof-top grid-connected system is presented, together with a tentative description of its performance ratio and life-cycle costing. A possible scenario of the widespread applications of solar photovoltaic grid-connected systems in Malta is discussed. The factors that contribute to its realisation are also analysed.
