Message from the EU PVSEC General Chairman Professor Marko Topič


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.


I am very pleased to welcome you in Munich. I am sure the 32nd EU PVSEC will energize and inspire you again.


Marko Topič

Chairman of European Technology & Innovation Platform Photovoltaics,

EU PVSEC General Chairman

Becquerel Prize 2016 - Nomination of Candidates


The Alexandre Edmund Becquerel Prize was established in 1989 by the European Commission on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Becquerel’s classical experiment in which he discovered the photovoltaic effect. Its purpose is to honour scientific, technical or managerial merit in the development of photovoltaic solar energy, attained over a long period of continuous achievements, or very exceptionally, for some extraordinary invention or discovery.


The international nomination process for the year 2016 is open. The Prize will be awarded in June 2016 on the occasion of the 32nd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) in Munich, Germany.



The latest date to submit nominations for that prestigious award is 26 February 2016.
