The Solar Mobility Forum will discuss the challenge of integrating PV and electricity mobility to support the global energy revolution. It will highlight the role of PV for clean transport in the coming years. The newly created IEA PVPS Task 17 on PV for transport has just initiated its activities. Several experts will be invited to contribute to the Solar Mobility Forum and will highlight the role of PV in transport in the coming years.

  • E-mobility through Solar Energy – A step towards the Energy Revolution
  • Manufacturing PV for Transport
  • Concrete cases


08:30 – 10:00
SESSION 1 – E-mobility through Solar Energy – A step towards the Energy Revolution

E-mobility is starting to develop fast and could rapidly outpace PV as the fastest growing energy revolution enhancer. This session will address fundamental questions in the e-mobility field: How does mobility contribute to energy demand? What could be the PV role in transport decarbonization in the coming years? In the quest for clean transport, what will be the role of existing players and what will be the role of hydrogene?

10:00 – 10:20 – Coffee Break

10:20 – 12:15
SESSION 2 – Manufacturing PV for Transport

10:20 – 11:20
Part 1 – The role of PV Industry
Chaired by Martin Fisher (VON ARDENNE)
Speakers: Bonna Newman (ECN part of TNO), Stefan Sellner (SCHMID), Taizo Masuda (Toyota Research Institute)
PV is well placed to provide vehicles with embedded energy production. From small appliances to delivering additional range, PV can support the electrification of transport. This session will explore the role of the PV industry in integrating PV in vehicles. What would be technically feasible? What would be the technologies driving this new PV industry role?

11:20 – 12:15
Part 2 – Concrete cases
Chaired by Pierre Verlinden (AMROCK)
Speakers: Akira Terakawa (Panasonic), Angele Reinders (University of Twente), Arjo Van der Ham (Lightyear), Reinhard Wecker (A2)
Companies are already investing in clean transportation with PV and are presenting the challenges they are facing as well as their hopes for the future. From new PV integrated cars to any transport vehicles, the range of possible applications is large, but the opportunities are barely reaching the market. This session will build on the experience from several companies active in the transport sector.

12:10 – 13:30 Lunch Break
