The second annual PV CellTech conference kicked off in Penang, Malaysia on Tuesday.

The event brings together top figures from the PV manufacturing value chain including Stuart Wenham of the University of New South Wales, SCHMID PV’s Chritian Buchner, Qi Wang, the chief scientist at Jinko Solar and Gunter Erfurt, the COO of Meyer Burger.

“I know that everyone in this room shares a similar vision for the importance of technology adoption in the PV supply chain,” said David Owen, founder and CEO of Solar Media, the publisher of PV Tech and organiser of the PV CellTech event during his welcome speech.

The event brings a live event to complement the Photovoltaics International Journal and PVI celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2017.

The PV CellTech conference is led by Finlay Colville, head of market research at PV Tech and Solar Media who is also chairman of the event’s advisory board.

“Having tracked technology adoption in PV for more than seven years, rigorously and consistently there is no one more qualified to take on the responsibility for bringing all of us together here in Penang to continue and indeed drive the vision for PVI into the next ten years,” said Owen.

“Whether you are an old friend or new friend I welcome you all to this unique technical event and am excited to see what you come up with for the next ten years of commercial PV manufacturing development.”
