The Organic Photovoltaics 2009 event, organized by IntertechPira, will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from April 27 through 29, 2009. The event is being co-chaired by Russell Gaudiana of Konarka Technologies, Inc., and Dr. Dana Olson of the NREL. This year’s venue will provide an exceptional arena for industry experts, researchers, customers and investors to address the opportunities and most critical challenges for the commercialization of OPV technologies.
The forum will provide a versatile examination of what is required to renovate today’s laboratory-based technologies into large-scale commercial products. Discussion of technological requirements and manufacturing considerations will be accompanied by an analysis of market forces to identify not only when OPVs will be widely commercialized, but what role they will play in the context of a growing PV industry.
The conference will present approximately 18 expert presentations assessing OPV market trends, technical development and application related advances through presentations, question-and-answer sessions and panel discussions. There will also be two pre-conference workshops that will be held prior to Monday, April 27, 2009.
