Surfing the green wave

R Kenny2019

Governments all around the world are not only setting targets for carbon neutrality over a generational time span, but are also committing to making investments to make it happen. Electromobility is increasing and is expected to grow ever faster. Building renovation to reduce energy consumption is gaining increased attention. Investments are being directed towards a sustainable economy and sustainable employment. One technology is at the heart of all these developments - it is of course PV. We also find installations in an ever growing range of applications, no longer niche - BIPV, Agro-PV, P2X, for example. Meanwhile, the technology continues to advance through exciting work which increases cell efficiencies and introduces new concepts. Our conference covers all the above and more, so please make sure you don’t miss out.

As well our extensive programme, this year we aim to substantially increase the number of conference papers that may be put forward for publication in peer-reviewed journals. On top of our longstanding collaboration with Progress in Photovoltaics, we also have an agreement in place to publish a selection of our best submissions in Solar RRL. Furthermore, we announce a collaboration with EPJ Photovoltaics to publish a selection of highlight submissions in a special edition. Through these different offerings we intend to not only increase the number of high quality peer reviewed papers coming out of the conference to approximately 100, but also expand the breadth of scope and offer a range of publication options, including Open Access. We will of course continue to publish the fully citable (DOI) conference proceedings immediately following the conference to ensure rapid transmission of your scientific results, whether or not you wish to explore these additional publishing options.

Learn more about the different journals and their publishing features to choose which one is most suitable for your needs.

Be part of tomorrow’s energy transition and help us shape the programme of Europe’s biggest PV and solar energy conference.
Submit your abstract now and get the chance to connect with PV experts around the globe, learn about and contribute to the latest innovations in PV and help advance PV research and deployment while enjoying the beautiful city of Lisbon.

The organiser is currently working on a sophisticated hygiene and security concept for the location in Lisbon to make sure every participant is and feels safe and protected, while enjoying the advantages of getting together and connecting to the global PV community. However, we are monitoring current developments very carefully and we are ready to adjust the concept of the conference if needed.

We look forward to seeing you in person once again, in Lisbon in 2021. Keep up the good work!
