Welcome from the host country

The Netherlands is very pleased to host the EU PVSEC 2017 and welcomes you
to the beautiful city of Amsterdam! GDM0677 WimSinke

Solar energy is considered a key technology for a sustainable energy future, also in our small and windy country. Integration of PV into buildings, infrastructure and landscape offers great opportunities to achieve impact and even offshore combinations with wind energy, biomass, and energy storage may be possible. Large-scale generation of sustainable electricity can be used not only to cover electricity demand, but also for heating purposes and perhaps even for fuels and products. This conviction is clearly translated into our innovation and deployment policies. PV is an important topic in the ambitious innovation program of the TKI Urban Energy; the national public-private partnership for energy innovations in the urban environment in broad sense. Large-scale PV deployment is stimulated by several financial incentives for small and large systems and the PV market has grown accordingly. In short: PV is here to stay and flourish.

The Netherlands has a global perspective on societal and environmental challenges, on business opportunities, and on culture. Therefore 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. Let’s learn from each other and inspire each other. We hope to see you here from 25 to 29 September 2017!
