The experts of the PV solar branch meet in Brussels to discuss new concepts, trends and developments in science and industry. The EU PVSEC provides an inspiring platform for dialogue and information exchange across the world.
“It is my great honour and great pleasure to invite you to attend the next EU PVSEC to be held for the first time in my home town, the beautiful city of Brussels, the capital and the heart of Europe”, said Dr. Pierre Verlinden, EU PVSEC Conference General Chairman and
Director at Amrock Pty Ltd. And Visiting Professor at Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China .
“The EU PVSEC has always been for me a special event – continued Pierre Verlinden, where we are updated on all aspects of the latest photovoltaic technology developments, as well as on other topics such as new policies, market trends, social and educational impacts. Over the last 4 decades, the EU PVSEC has been for me an important forum, source of inspiration, a week of fruitful reflection on my work and a time to meet friends and colleagues from all over the world.”
EU PVSEC – Where the Latest in Science & Technology Meets Industry
The advancements of solar scientists continue to be impressive, and so are the constant product innovations of solar companies – that’s why next to the EU PVSEC conference events we’ve been traditionally having an industry exhibition.
It almost seems that increasing efficiency has never been higher on the agenda of the PV industry, which is evaluating and quickly putting into production various advanced cell architectures.
Moreover, at EU PVSEC the world leading researchers in the crystalline silicon field will provide their latest updates, together with PERC cell technology the new standard in silicon solar cell technologies.
“From the early phases of photovoltaic energy deployment the scientific and technological aspects were supported by leading institutes in Belgium and the EU PVSEC 2018 is the perfect place for them to showcase this pioneering role and to interact with their partners and competitors” said Prof. Jef Poortmans, Director PV@imec, R&D Strategy Coordinator of EnergyVille. “Therefore – he concludes – we look forward to the exchange of exciting developments in PV science, technology and applications and all related topics, between stakeholders from all over the world. We hope to see you here from 24 to 28 September 2018 in Brussels in an atmosphere where the useful is combined with the pleasant, another Belgian characteristic!”
Conference Programme 2018 – with almost 1,000 presentations from all over the world, the programme is offering both an overview and in-depth insights to the latest research in the PV solar energy sector.
The international Conference programme is structured in plenary, oral and visual presentations and covers the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications, focusing on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends.
The abstracts received have been reviewed and scored by the EU PVSEC Scientific Committee made up of more than 200 renowned PV research and industry experts from the global PV sector. To guarantee the quality of the programme, each abstract has been scored by three independent reviewers before the topic organisers met in April 2018 in Brussels to select the plenary, oral and visual presentations.
