The EU PVSEC is determined to make the best out of the current situation and is transitioning into an online event this year. Therefore, we are thrilled to open our virtual doors to the scientific community in a space designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas and latest advancements. The international Conference Programme is structured in plenary, oral and visual presentations (further details and guidelines on the formats and features particularly for the online event will be published shortly). These cover the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications with a special emphasis on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends.

The Conference will be hosted on our platform and will be an interactive live event.

The Conference section guides you to the full programme by day including a search section. Includes interactive features similar to our EU PVSEC programme planner and links to plenary/oral and visual presentations. After choosing a presentation or session, participants are directed to an auditorium or to a poster sub-page.

  • Plenary and Oral presentations:
    The plenary and oral presentations will be streamed via live feed through the platform. For a speaker, the experience is similar to a video conferencing tool like teams, zoom or GoToMeeting.
    Presenters are visible to the audience and can share their screen to perform their presentation. A technician is permanently monitoring the virtual rooms, giving support and briefing all speakers 15 minutes before the start of each session. 2 Chairpersons are as well in the session introducing and moderating questions and answers. The audience can use the live Q&A chat to ask their questions to presenters.
    *In case speakers have difficulties performing live, they can as well upload prerecorded video-presentations that will be displayed by the technical staff during the session.
  • Visual presentations:
    Same as all other sessions, Visuals are performed live. Each visual presentation has a sub-page assigned with a 2 way video chat so interaction between speakers and audience is guaranteed (speakers and audience can see and talk to each other live). Poster presentations will be on display on the virtual poster wall throughout the week. Each author can upload a brief introduction video of their topic which is visible throughout the conference.  Via the live video chat, the presenter can present his/her poster during the session (just as in an on-site event) and audience can ask live questions, debate and discuss with no limit of participants. Uploaded posters (pdf.) are zoomable and a technician is assigned permanently to visual sessions to make sure all runs smoothly.

* Detailed guidelines and instructions for authors and presenters

With more solar PV capacities installed than any other power technology in recent years and all Market Outlook Scenarios showing strong growth, EU PVSEC extends its focus to applied and policy-orientated topics to reflect this rapid increase. While solar is the most versatile and often lowest cost power generation source in Europe today, EU PVSEC continues to strengthen the importance and potential of solar among global researchers, policy-makers and industry. The opportunity to share your work with and learn from a large online gathering of your fellow experts over a broad range of topics critical to the future energy system is unique to the EU PVSEC. Join us!

R Kenny2019Maintaining Momentum

In 2020 the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference will be held in the week of 7-11 September. We invite workers in all fields concerned with photovoltaic energy generation to submit abstracts within the 7th February 2020 deadline. The EU PVSEC continues to be the leading platform for the global PV community to meet and discuss new ideas and concepts. The conference maintains at its heart the sharing and development of technical knowledge regarding PV materials, cells and systems. It also sees as essential the dissemination of work that helps ensure rapidly increasing quantities of renewable energy, especially that generated by PV, can be integrated into the current and future energy network.
