Time: 13:30 – 17:00
Site: EU PVSEC at Marseille Chanot Convention and Exhibition Centre, Marseille, France
Room: Auditorium 5 Morgiou, first floor
Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

This is a special event, at its 8th edition, in conjunction with the 36th EUPVSEC, organised by ENEA, Becquerel Institute, ETA-Florence and WIP-Munich.

The event highlights how architects, designers, developers, and researchers take up the challenge of letting photovoltaic systems interact with landscapes and buildings.

“Energy as a landscape infrastructure” is the challenge for this year’s edition, in Marseille.

Along with ambitious energy policy targets, the number of solutions for implementing photovoltaics is increasing. Floating photovoltaics, agrivoltaics, are only some of these new examples. This trend is changing photovoltaic system from being “intruders” in the landscape to being new infrastructures supporting also new ecosystem services.
This year’s edition is going to be a showcase of such new solutions.
