25th EU PVSEC and 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion – Conference
The Conference will take place from 6th to 10th September 2010 at the Feria Valencia in Spain. The 25th EU PVSEC will be the most important international Conference in the field of Photovoltaics and will be at the same time the 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion.
The 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion will unite the three most important scientific and strategic conferences for the global PV solar sector: the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, the 36th US IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference and the 20th Asia/Pacific PV Science and Engineering Conference.
Meet the experts of the PV solar branch in Valencia to discuss new trends and developments in science and industry. Valencia will provide an excellent platform for dialogue and information exchange across the World.
This 25th EU PVSEC will be a truly global event which uniquely combines scientific and technological issues from the perspective of research and development, industry, utilities, politics, architecture and end-users.
The five-day Conference Programme will be accompanied by exciting side events as Workshops and Technical Tours on present-day PV issues and the 7th European PV Industry Forum. This international event will be completed by an attractive social programme to meet your colleagues from all around the globe.
The programme comprises:
Plenary lectures focusing on the state-of-the-art and targets of PV
Oral and poster presentations of specific research, development and demonstration projects, PV applications,
Exhibition of PV products and services (6-9 Sept.)
Forum and workshops on present-day PV issues
Scientific tours and a social programme
