Keynotes: Richard Moreth (Vitronic)
Panelists: Delfina Munoz (CEA-INES), Laura Azpilicueta (RECOM), Laurent Kroely (Jonas & Redmann), Ulrike Jahn (TUV Rheinland), William Chen (Aleo)
The PV module is dead, long life to the PV module. Diversification of the market and different technologies could affect the market in the coming years. But how to manufacture these new products? What is necessary today to manufacture profitably PV components? From manufacturing size to throughput, how could a higher quality be achieved? This session will be chaired by the ETIP-PV Quality committee.

Keynote: David Feldman (NREL)
Speakers: Fabrizio Bizzarri (ENEL Green Power), Frank Niendorf (Jinko Solar), Jac Hanssen (Innolane)
Trade conflicts are popping up faster than expected and this impacts the PV value chain in unexpected ways. The question of local manufacturing becomes essential again, but for which part of the value chain and at which cost? In an internationally diversified value chain, which are the business models that will develop in the coming years?

16:45 – 18:00

The BIPV industry experiences the cost constraints that PV encountered before 2006: small quantities, higher prices, and challenges to mass production. How can BIPV reach the next level in terms of manufactured quantities? How to adapt the one-fits-all concepts of PV production to the need for flexibility that BIPV requires? How could PV equipment manufacturers play a major role in that development? These are the subjects that will be addressed in this session. The first part will address directly the challenges to mass production directly while the second part will highlight recent innovations in manufacturing BIPV products.

BIPV – bridging the gap between PV industry supply and construction industry demand

jointly with the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (IEA PVPS) – IEA PVPS Task 15 and the Zuyd University of Applied Science

Day: Tuesday, 25 September 20183 5 IEA PVPS
Time: 13:30 - 17:00
Site: Auditorium The Arc, Level 3
Access: Open to all conference participants on registered day(s)

Zuyd i R FC webBIPV is seen as one of the key development tracks of PV towards mass application. As BIPV is still seen as an innovation in the construction industry, the large scale adoption still needs to be improved. Adoption in the construction industry depends on 4 elements; product characteristics, adopter characteristics, industry characteristics and the influence on the environment. In this workshop, the different elements for a successful adoption will be covered from different perspectives to generate insight how to successfully create an enabling framework for BIPV acceleration.

Time: 08:30 – 12:10
Site: Audit. Hall 400, Level 4
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)SIF Website Logo Vertical

The Solar Mobility Forum will discuss the challenge of integrating PV and electricity mobility to support the global energy revolution. It will highlight the role of PV for clean transport in the coming years. The newly created IEA PVPS Task 17 on PV for transport has just initiated its activities. Several experts will be invited to contribute to the Solar Mobility Forum and will highlight the role of PV in transport in the coming years.

  • E-mobility through Solar Energy – A step towards the Energy Revolution
  • Manufacturing PV for Transport
  • Concrete cases

Programme

08:30 – 10:00
SESSION 1 – E-mobility through Solar Energy – A step towards the Energy Revolution

E-mobility is starting to develop fast and could rapidly outpace PV as the fastest growing energy revolution enhancer. This session will address fundamental questions in the e-mobility field: How does mobility contribute to energy demand? What could be the PV role in transport decarbonization in the coming years? In the quest for clean transport, what will be the role of existing players and what will be the role of hydrogene?
Chaired by Heinz Ossenbrink
Speakers:
Christian Breyer (LUT), Jean Rodiere (Wattway), Keiichi Komoto (Mizuho), Marie-France Van der Valk (Renault – Nissan), Olivier Nowak (IHS)

10:00 – 10:20 – Coffee Break

10:20 – 12:15
SESSION 2 – Manufacturing PV for Transport

10:20 – 11:20
Part 1 – The role of PV Industry
Chaired by Martin Fisher (VON ARDENNE)
Speakers: Bonna Newman (ECN part of TNO), Stefan Sellner (SCHMID), Taizo Masuda (Toyota Research Institute)
PV is well placed to provide vehicles with embedded energy production. From small appliances to delivering additional range, PV can support the electrification of transport. This session will explore the role of the PV industry in integrating PV in vehicles. What would be technically feasible? What would be the technologies driving this new PV industry role?

11:20 – 12:15
Part 2 – Concrete cases
Chaired by Pierre Verlinden (AMROCK)
Speakers: Akira Terakawa (Panasonic), Angele Reinders (University of Twente), Arjo Van der Ham (Lightyear), Reinhard Wecker (A2)
Companies are already investing in clean transportation with PV and are presenting the challenges they are facing as well as their hopes for the future. From new PV integrated cars to any transport vehicles, the range of possible applications is large, but the opportunities are barely reaching the market. This session will build on the experience from several companies active in the transport sector.

Trends in PV Development – from Turmoil to Mainstream?

jointly with International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (IEA PVPS) – IEA PVPS Task 1 in cooperation with IRENA

Time: 13:30 – 17:30
Site: Audit. The Arc, Level 3
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

Costs of solar electricity have fallen so rapidly that new markets, applications and business models are being unlocked faster than is generally realised. The emergence of new applications which have not been on the market development radar before now is offering exciting opportunities to expand the deployment of solar PV. At the same time, the market was driven by the boom of PV installations in China, a boom that was halted by the Chinese decision to control its market. With the largest market going down, what will happen to the PV industry and which markets will compensate this in the coming years? Will this turmoil change the path of PV development in the coming years? While the PV market was expected to continue booming, we may see some “lost” years before it grows again.

This event will first discuss the development of the PV market, and the impact of policies on the speed at which PV could develop. Will policies continue to shape the market and especially long term targets? From China to the USA and from Spain to Japan, this workshop will challenge the future evolution of PV.
