The EU PVSEC 2020 online closed its virtual doors

EUPVSEC2020 PostEventReportDespite concerns about a virtual event, the EU PVSEC 2020 online was a huge success and numbers confirm it:
With over 850 live presentations across 5 days, 1.500 participants from 65 countries were virtually connected. The opening session was streamed live on Youtube and caught the attention of over 3.000 viewers.

Thank you!

We want to thank all speakers and presenters, chairpersons, authors and co-authors, committee members and participants for their support, hard work and feedback. Together, we contributed to the success of the EU PVSEC 2020 online.

After 5 days of news and updates about the latest developments in the PV and solar energy sector, we are happy to conclude the EU PVSEC with hopeful words from our General Chair Prof. Nicola Pearsall. Creating a sustainable energy supply must become our main objective, and only together, through exchange and cooperation, we can achieve this goal.

Stay healthy and see you in 2021!
