35th EU PVSEC 2018 - The conference plenaries preview by Dr. Heinz Ossenbrink / part 2


The conference plenaries are pre-viewed around the three strands of photovoltaics:


Strand 1: Science & Technology of PV Conversion


Strand 2: PV Electricity Systems


Strand 3: PV as Energy Source



Exposed in more detail now:


Strand 2: PV Electricity Systems


PLENARY SESSION 5DP.1 08:30 - 10:00 Photovoltaic Modules and BoS Components

PLENARY SESSION 6DP.2 10:30 - 12:00 PV Systems Performance, Applications and Integration


The plenaries in this strand provide span from the technology of the components over assembly into application specific systems to the actual experience of electricity delivered by PV. They will give deep insight into the art of engineering of complex, but yet reliable and performant PV components and whole installations.


European Becquerel Prize for Outstanding Merits in Photovoltaics - Congratulations to the Prize Winner!


The European Becquerel Prize for Outstanding Merits in Photovoltaics is being awarded on the occasion of the EU PVSEC Conference. This prize was established by the European Commission in 1989 to mark the 150th anniversary of Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel’s discovery of the photovoltaic effect in 1839, which laid the foundation of both, photovoltaics and photography.


Congratulations to the Becquerel Prize Winner 2018: Peter Wuerfel!


The Becquerel Prize 2018 is awarded to Prof. Peter Wuerfel, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany.


Prof. Wuerfel receives the Becquerel Prize 2018 in recognition of his fundamental contribution to the theory of photovoltaic energy conversion. His theoretical approach is characterized by a consistent application of thermodynamic concepts: electrochemical potentials for modelling processes in the absorber material and the chemical potential of light - deduced from the generalization of Planck’s radiation law – for characterizing the absorbed solar radiation and the emitted luminescent radiation of solar cells.


By providing a deeper understanding of photovoltaic energy conversion, the work of Prof. Wuerfel has significantly influenced the development of technologies like selective contacts or tools like the luminescence analysis of solar cells.


Prof. Wuerfel presented the physical/thermodynamic principles of direct solar electric energy conversion in his highly regarded book ”Physics of Solar Cells”. This book has imparted a physics-based knowledge on the functionality of solar cells to almost a whole generation of scientists and has paved the way for new photovoltaic technologies.


Award Ceremony: The Prize will be awarded at the Opening of this year’s European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, Brussels, 24 September 2018.
