Conference in Hamburg will pave the Way of PV´s Future

Collective Intelligence:
EU PVSEC unites global researchers, industry representatives & policy makers

Munich, 2 September 2015 - Solar PV technology has already exceeded its deployment goals under the European Union's renewable energy targets for 2020. The 13th five-year plan of China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) aimed a 100GW target for solar PV by 2020. Now it is widely speculated, that Chinas goal will be raised to an optimistic 200GW. The US solar PV market is growing almost by 40% every year. Solar PV energy is on the advance worldwide!
These very positive indications for a bright future of PV energy are no reason for the PV experts to sit back and relax. Quite the contrary: The world´s brightest minds of the sector meet at EU PVSEC annually, to work out ways to enhance the competiveness and implementation of PV and strengthen its position in the global energy mix of the future.
