The European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) is a fixed appointment in the calendar of PV experts – and has been for decades
In the 33rd edition from 25 to 29 September the global PV R&D community will meet in Amsterdam to discuss new concepts, trends and developments in PV science and industry. Research and technology innovations, as well as policy and strategy framework conditions – the future of photovoltaics – will be shaped by a unique alliance between researchers, industry, and politics.
The Conference programme, with more than 1,100 presentations (plenaries, orals, visuals) in 7 different fields and further presentations in parallel events, covers the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications, focusing on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends.
The EU PVSEC in Amsterdam will feature a research and industry connecting exhibition. This business and research platform will offer attendants the opportunity to complement the scientific exchange at the conference with first-hand updates from leading PV equipment and material suppliers as well as from institutes at the exhibition.
