SiliconPV 2021 & nPV

For the first time in its history, the 11th edition of SiliconPV will take place online as a virtual event. It will cover the latest trends and results in advanced technologies, materials and concepts for crystalline Si solar cells and modules. The Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin (ISFH) will host the event and will welcome participants to share and discuss the latest results and findings in the field.

SiliconPV 2021 will again display the most recent progress for reducing the cost of solar electricity from crystalline silicon PV including research on cell architectures including tandem cells, cell processes, modules, measurement, and simulation techniques. The program in 2021 will be close to the well-known form of the on-site conferences of the last years: You will find high-level scientific talks, poster sessions, question and answer rounds and lively discussions, a sponsor area and many opportunities for social exchange between all PV experts from science and industry.

SiliconPV in Conjunction with the nPV Workshop

Virtual Event @


Intersolar Summit Spain

By adding more than 2.6 GW in 2020, Spain remains under the Top 3 solar markets in Europe. The forecasts for future development remain promising, as Spain is expected to have a total installed solar PV capacity of 29.0 GW by 2024 in the medium scenario – making it the second largest solar market in Europe.

In 2021, the Intersolar Summit Spain takes place as a digital conference on April 21–22, 2021 – supported by SolarPower Europe and UNEF. Be part when corporate sourcing, Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), RES auctions, network access regulatory framework and self-consumption will be discussed and important contacts are made.

Advanced Battery Power Conference 2021 online

For the first time webcasted live: the annual International Conference Advanced Battery Power organized jointly by Haus der Technik, Essen, ISEA Institut, RWTH Aachen und MEET Batterieforschungszentrum Münster will in 2021 be hosted on a virtual conference platform and meet the networking needs of the community of battery experts in science and technology. The Conference 2021 will again create an exceptional schedule with international key-notes in our usual good spirits presenting up-to-date information on the cutting-edge of technology, the latest research results and forward-looking concepts.

For the 13th international symposium “Kraftwerk Batterie – Advanced Battery Power”, scientists, developers and engineers along the entire value chain of batteries meet online in the virtual conference room. The professional significance reaches far beyond the subject of automobile use and makes Advanced Battery Power a compulsory event for all engineers, researchers and developers who are involved with energy storage devices in general, new materials, network integration or battery recycling. The latest first-hand information and cross-sector content on all aspects of battery development and battery use make up the claim and appeal of the Advanced Battery Power Conference with the preceding Battery Day NRW and wide choice of preliminary seminars.

E-World energy and water in May 2021

The Leading Trade Fair for the Energy Industry

E-world energy & water is the place where the European energy industry comes together. Serving as an information platform for the energy sector, E-world is gathering international decision makers in Essen each year. More than one fifth of the exhibiting companies are based abroad. The majority of international exhibitors come from countries of the European Union.

PCIM Europe 2021

The PCIM Europe is the industry meeting point for specialists in power electronis, where representatives from the fields of research and industry come together, where trends and developments are presented to the public for the first time, and where the entire value chain is covered – all the way from components to intelligent systems.

At the PCIM Europe 2021, trade visitors will have the opportunity to discover a vast range of products and innovations in power electronics and its applications from numerous exhibitors. For all those interested in power electronics for e-mobility there will be an exhibition forum specifically and the „E-mobility Area“ dedicated to this topic.

At the conference held alongside the exhibition, the participants will learn more about the latest developments and research findings from the realms of science and industry in talks and poster presentations.

Power Purchase Agreement

Power Purchase Agreement

Commences: 10 May 2021 – 18 May 2021 (7am – 10am)


There are many moving pieces affecting the future of electric power development in emerging market. Unlike the past Independent Power Project models, which featured standardized take-or-pay contracts – today’s market demands more innovative incentives to ensure better availability, better performance, as well as more attractive and sustainable mixtures of fuel sources. Economies throughout developing countries urgently need to master the key tools, models, and lessons learned for transforming and strengthening today’s electricity sector. These include the latest models in negotiating Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), in designing and managing new competitive power

markets, as well as attracting the right mix of renewable energy sources. The objective of this course is to provide participants with an enhanced understanding of the practical & documentation requirements of all interested parties to today’s PF transaction. This program provides you with proven PF analytical strategies and transaction structuring techniques which will enable you to quantitatively assess risks, resolve constraints, and reach project financial closure. This program is also designed to enhance the check lists and benchmark metrics by which you can reduce losses and which will be viewed favorably by both management and the regulatory community.

This live online training course gives you clear explanations of the new models of PPA risk allocation, of designing and managing competitive power markets, attracting private investments in renewable energy, through a series of real case examples of contracts and markets. Case Studies will include real examples from Africa, Middle East, Asia, Europe and North America. Furthermore, cases stimulate independent thinking and discussion among participants.

‘Solar PV Big & Beyond – Delivering the 2030 Climate Targets’ | Annual Conference of the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics

As part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission proposed in September 2020 to raise the 2030 greenhouse gas emission reduction target, including emissions and removals, to at least 55% compared to 1990.

The Annual Conference of the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics will discuss the challenges of delivering these 2030 climate targets to Europe. The EU has to move towards a climate-neutral economy and has to implement its commitments under the Paris Agreement by updating its Nationally Determined Contribution. ETIP PV supports all activities and steps to be taken to make Europe a leader in green energy and to build an independent, clean energy supply.

The event will take place online and will cover four sessions with a series of live panel discussions on
May 19 & 20, 2021 from 2 pm – 5:30 pm CET (Brussels Time)
