European PV Solar Energy Conference receives increased industry abstracts


During September’s 25th EU PVSEC/WCPEC-5, participants and observers might note that there are more research and industry contributions. Renewable Energies states that 1,817 abstracts have been received, an increase of 237 abstracts from last year’s Hamburg conference.

Dr. Heinz Ossenbrink, the technical program chairman from the joint research center of European commissions, projects that, “’This number and the quality of the abstracts confirm the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition / 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion being the place where the next generation of photovoltaic technologies will be discussed. As an example, the topic ‘Advanced Photovoltaics’ with 404 abstracts received will show new concepts for photovoltaics and will map out the way towards ultrahigh efficiency solar cells for the technologies of tomorrow.’

Abstracts for wafer-based silicon solar cells and thin-film cells increased by 128 papers, to 943 submitted abstracts. With 70 countries participating in the September 6 through 9 event in Valencia, Spain, the event highlights the growing worldwide importance of the conference and solar energy in general.

Currently, the international scientific committee is making its final selections after its evaluation of all the entered abstracts. The program is presuming to feature approximately 31 plenary, 310 oral and 1,350 visual presentations. A detailed conference program will be available in May online at
