Access: Open to all Conference participants (on days registered)

The pandemics have barely impacted the PV market in 2020: with almost 140 GWdc installed, solar PV installations reached the highest market level ever. Growth is visible in different ways on all continents and the positive dynamics could unlock new markets and increase existing ones in the coming years.

However, the pandemics, in addition to other conjunctural effects has resulted in prices increases which are disrupting business models and calling for a rethinking of PV industry development.

This event intends to explore the question of market development, up to 200 GW of annual installations and above, through some specific aspects of policies, industry potential and a focus on some iconic markets.
