EU PVSEC 2021 comes to a successful end

The 38th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, held from 6 - 10 September 202, online, has come to an end, welcoming more than 1300 participants and covering an astonishing number of over 800 live presentations, consisting of Scientific Sessions, engaging Panel Discussions, in-depth Parallel Events and market related Industry Presentations.

We would like to thank the PV community for joining the EU PVSEC in its virtual edition for the second year in a row. Even though we would have preferred to meet in person, we were happy to see familiar as well as new faces on our screens.

Thank you to all speakers, chairpersons, attendees and operators for your hard work, your loyalty and your support! Together with you, we made the EU PVSEC 2021 online a great success.

 The EU PVSEC 2021 Proceedings will be published in the week of 15-19 November 2021.
