Message from the Technical Programme Chair
Dear Member of the Global PV Community,
Key role of PV forecast in all major future energy scenarios
The EU PVSEC 2016, the 32nd edition of the European Photovoltaic Energy Conference and Exhibition, offers you, once again, an excellent opportunity to absorb, update and discuss the most recent and relevant developments in photovoltaics. We are honoured to host this world class event this year in Munich, Germany, from 20-24 June, 2016, co-located with Intersolar Europe.
Of course it is not just about great conference location and facilities. All major future energy scenarios forecast a key role for photovoltaic solar energy. Further, the COP21’s overarching goal from Paris last year to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to limit the global temperature increase, clearly showed that expectations for PV are high. PV has a huge European and global potential, making it an important building block for cost-competitive, secure and sustainable energy systems. PV has just reached 1% of global annual electricity supply but has harnessed only a small fraction of its vast potential. PV deployment could be accelerated by further enhancing light-to-power conversion efficiency, and reducing module and system prices as well as grid-integration bottlenecks. After a difficult period in the PV sector over the past few years, we may expect a strong revival in the coming period. The sense of urgency for innovation is felt more than ever and global market conditions are improving. This also implies a huge challenge for the photovoltaic community.
The EU PVSEC 2016 will be the platform for a unique event to share the latest scientific, technical, financial, policy and market insights and developments. I look forward to an impressive programme that will offer each of you a variety of interesting topics and an opportunity to intensively learn, discuss and network.
Participate in the World’s Largest Specialist PV Solar Conference
The experts of the PV solar branch meet in Amsterdam to discuss new concepts, trends and developments in science and industry. The EU PVSEC provides the most inspiring platform for dialogue and information exchange across the World.
The international Conference programme will be structured in plenary, oral and visual presentations and cover the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications, focusing on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends. Now, that Photovoltaic Solar Energy is becoming a major electricity source, the EU PVSEC extended its focus to applied and policy-oriented topics. The EU PVSEC thus strengthens its established leading role in science and technology among the players of the global PV sector.
EU PVSEC, the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, is the most frequented international conference for the photovoltaic sector. For more than 30 years, it has been serving globally as the annual meeting point for PV experts from research, development and the industry.
The EU PVSEC focuses on upstream research and technologies and covers the latest findings in research. The future of photovoltaics will be shaped by a unique alliance between research and industry.
