Message from General Chair João M Serra

Many dreamed about photovoltaics and the solar age; we see the dream coming true


"I am honoured to chair the 38th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition that is planned to be held on September 6 to 10, 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The EU Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition is a world reference point regarding the latest developments related to PV and for up-to-date insights regarding new opportunities. PV is a major contributor to a cleaner and safer future for the planet. The latest updates on PV science, technology, systems, finance, policies, and markets are all covered by EU PVSEC 2021.

Let me give you a few more of the very good reasons to attend the EUPSEC 2021:

  • Different material technologies combine to establish new cell efficiency records. The learning curves of photovoltaics keep dropping at impressive rates. In August 2020, 670 megawatts (MW) were awarded at the Portugal solar auction, in 13 power plants, of which 8 have associated batteries (100 MW in total). No public subsidies were involved. Furthermore a new world record of €11.14 per MWh, in the fixed price mode, for a 10 MW power plant (without batteries) was established
  • Lowest LCOE record is reported by IEA for PV, making it the cheapest energy source
  • Increase in installed capacity despite Covid-19 and blooming new applications such as floating PV, Agro-PV, are taking PV really everywhere

We all know that a great conference is much more than just a very good location and its facilities. It is also about meeting colleagues and old friends, having live discussions about new results and new ideas. Meeting new people, expanding your network of contacts and broadening your vision is a key aspect of the EU PVSEC. In 2021, being together has a special meaning and I am sure we all feel that even more. Have a look to an impressive programme that offers each of you a variety of interesting topics which you will not want to miss.

Portugal is a reference for renewables and well known for its huge ocean waves. You will agree that in these exciting times PV is surfing the green wave into a bright future.

I am looking forward to seeing you all at the EU PVSEC 2021!"
