The 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition/5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (25th EU PVSEC/WCPEC-5) opens its doors today (Monday Sept.6th), welcoming the global PV community to the Feria, Valencia. This year the event is expected to attract more than 4,500 conference delegates and approximately 40,000 visitors to the photovoltaics industry exhibition.
“This World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion will bring together the three most important global scientific and strategic PV Conferences: the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, the 36th US IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference and the 20th Asia/Pacific PV Science and Engineering Conference. We are confident that this 5th World Conference will provide the best forum to present the latest progress in PV development and manufacturing. Exciting visions of how massive deployment of photovoltaic systems will look in 10 years from now will be outlined,” said the EU PVSEC/WCPEC-5 2010 organizers.
The conference programme includes presentations on:
- Advanced photovoltaics: new concepts and ultra-high efficiency
- Wafer-based silicon solar cells and materials technology
- Thin-film solar cells
- Components for PV systems
- PV systems
- PV taking off: large-scale deployment.
The exhibition features a total of 963 exhibitors stretching over eight large halls at the Feria Valencia fairground, covering an area of 80,000m2. Exhibitors have travelled from around the world to present their new products, technical solutions and services to the global PV audience.
EU PVSEC executive director Peter Helm said, “12 years after 2nd World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion in Vienna, Austria, it is again Europe’s turn to welcome the global PV community and to host the WCPEC-5.”
“We welcome all exhibitors from around the world, making this the largest EU PVSEC Exhibition ever held. We are convinced that this 25th EU PVSEC/WCPEC-5 will launch new ideas and will give a strong impetus to meet the challenges for the PV industry and for the global scientific community.”
Photovoltaics International is exhibiting on Level 2, Hall 3, Booth D1.
