35th EU PVSEC 2018 Conference General Chairman

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Pierre Verlinden as Conference General Chair of the 35th EU PVSEC, following the withdrawal of Dr. Dominique Neerinck for personal reasons. Dr. Piotr Szymanski, chair of the EU PVSEC International Scientific Advisory Committee,  commented: we welcome Pierre Verlinden and are confident that he will excel in this assignment. He is a distinguished member of the global PV community and I am convinced that he will contribute to the success of this event. All the very best to Dominique Neerinck and many thanks for his contributions.

Dr Verlinden has been working in the field of photovoltaics for 40 years and has published over 200 technical papers and contributed to a number of books. From 2012 to 2018, Dr Verlinden served as Chief Scientist, Vice-President and Vice-Chair of the State Key Laboratory of PV Science and Technology at Trina Solar, China, one of the world’s largest PV manufacturers. Previously, he has managed the R&D department or served as Chief Scientist in several PV companies in USA and Australia, including SunPower, Origin Energy and Solar Systems. Dr Verlinden is the recipient of the 2016 William Cherry Award, awarded by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and one of the world highest distinctions in PV research, for his dedication over the past three decades at the forefront of PV technology and commercialization, leading technology advances including the interdigitated back contact cell, silicon and multijunction III-V CPV cells, and his overall leadership of key R&D organizations. Dr Verlinden is also recipient of the 2017 Chinese Government Friendship Award, the highest award given by China to foreigners.

 

Chairman's Message

It is my great honour and great pleasure to invite you to attend the next EU PVSEC to be held for the first time in my home town, the beautiful city of Brussels, the capital and the heart of Europe.  The EU PVSEC has always been for me a special event where we are updated on all aspects of the latest photovoltaic technology developments, as well as on other topics such as new policies, market trends, social and educational impacts. Over the last 4 decades, the EU PVSEC has been for me an important forum, source of inspiration, a week of fruitful reflection on my work and a time to meet friends and colleagues from all over the world.

As a PV scientist, this is my goal and my mission. I would like to share this journey with you. I look forward to seeing you at the EU PVSEC 2018 in Brussels. Together, let’s send a message to the governments and to the world that PV is taking its responsibilities and its role very seriously. The world needs you!

Director at Amrock Pty Ltd
Visiting Professor at Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China

 


Welcome from the host country

Belgium and the City of Brussels are very pleased and honored to host the EU PVSEC 2018!

Electricity generation from the Sun is one of the key technologies to realize the transition to a sustainable Energy system with a large share of renewables. This conviction is subject to a growing consensus amongst the different policy levels in Belgium and the Regions. Since 2 years we see again a healthy expansion of the PV-market in Belgium and it is often forgotten that the amount of installed PV/inhabitant in our country is amongst the highest in Europe. Therefore we are more than ever convinced: PV is here to stay and flourish further.
 JeffPoortmans

Belgium has a great tradition in organizing top-level exchange meetings between scientists– remind the famous Solvay Conferences in the early days of the 20th century where famous scientists like Einstein, Bohr, ... were discussing in depth the new insights in physics which would revolutionize science. From the early phases of photovoltaic energy deployment the scientific and technological aspects were supported by leading institutes in Belgium and the EU PVSEC 2018 is the perfect place for them to showcase this pioneering role and to interact with their partners and competitors. 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. We hope to see you here from 24 to 28 September 2018 in Brussels in an atmosphere where the useful is combined with the pleasant, another Belgian characteristic!
