We are proud to announce that the preparations for the Opening Ceremony of the EU PVSEC 2021 are in full swing and will offer an energetic line-up that is well worth seeing.

It brings together the knowledge of researchers, industry leaders and policy makers who will come together in September to promote the role of PV in the global energy transition and its importance in achieving the goals of the European Green Deal.

Full Conference Programme available

Dear PV and Energy professional,

It is with great pride that we share the full scientific programme of the 38th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, to be held 6-10 September 2021 online. We have a full and varied scientific programme which covers fields of interest to all stakeholders, ranging from concepts, materials, cells and modules, through to applications, systems, policies and markets. The programme contains three dedicated plenary sessions covering the full range of conference topics, targeted to provide an in-depth overview to the non-specialist. These will provide you with key knowledge on the present and future direction of PV, which is increasingly being recognized for its crucial role in the future sustainable integrated energy system. Oral and Visual sessions are grouped by topic and theme easily located and tracked in our programme outline and full conference programme.

Our conference offers a unique opportunity to present your work and learn more about your own area of specialization, as well as to follow developments, and meet workers, in other fields. We are aware that being online offers a different experience to a physical conference, and we have included four dedicated discussion sessions in the programme (13:30-15:00 Monday-Thursday) covering the hot issues within the different conference topics that are intended to stimulate involvement of all participants. The possibility of remote connection does enable the welcome participation of many who perhaps would not manage to attend a physical event in a far away continent, and I look forward to meeting you all online from every corner of the globe and from every time zone.

EU PVSEC Industry Summit

As an absolute novelty, the first ever EU PVSEC Industry Summit will take place this September. This new initiative emphasizes the importance of refocusing on the PV industry in Europe and foster manufacturing capacities within the EU. It gives industry players a stage to present their businesses, but also to share and discuss new developments in the industrial sector with fellow experts.

You too can become part of the EU PVSEC Industry Summit Programme by sharing your knowledge in a panel discussion, a short presentation or even a dedicated workshop.
