- PV - A Major Electricity Source
- Global PV installations exceeded 12 GW in Q1 2015, with 52 GW expected in 2015
- Europe has already passed the 88 GW that the Member States originally committed to reach by 2020
- 6,500 authors and co-authors from 86 countries contributed to the conference programme
The 31st European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC 2015) taking place from 14 – 18 September 2015 at the CCH - Congress Center Hamburg, Germany, will be chaired by Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, Chief Executive Officer of SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG. There will be 1,300 presentations from 6,500 authors and co-authors from 86 countries, with 40% of these presentations being contributed by international non-European specialists. The comprehensive conference programme will provide a full range of PV knowledge and technologies. The large number of conference sessions focusing on Photovoltaic technology and innovation promising a week of excellence. With these presentations and conference sessions, the EU PVSEC 2015 underlines its own worldwide importance while once again setting the benchmark for this year’s global PV events. The EU PVSEC 2015 offers the opportunity to join the world's top-ranking scientists, engineers and industry leaders to present and discuss future PV technologies and applications.
The EU PVSEC 2015 Conference Programme will include main topics such as New Materials and Concepts for Solar Cells and Modules, Wafer-Based Silicon Solar Cells and Materials Technology and Thin Film Solar Cells and Modules.
PV Applications like Solar Cells / Assemblies / Modules for Terrestrial Concentrator Systems and for Space Solar Generators and an overview of Operations, Performance and Reliability of Photovoltaics (from Cells to Systems) are additional topics which will be discussed during the conference week.
Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, Conference General Chairman of the EU PVSEC 2015, states: ”In Europe the good news is that we've now already passed the 88 GW that the Member States originally committed to reach by 2020. So the question is how much more can we bring into the system, looking not just at 2020 but 2030 and beyond. R&D has a big role to play in this and we expect during the EU PVSEC 2015 many presentations addressing the science and technology developments are needed to further increase competiveness.”
According to Energy Trend’s gold member data research, global PV installations will reach 52 GW in 2015, of which China, Japan and the US account for 63%. Based on Energy Trend’s statistics, global PV installations surpassed 12GW in the first quarter of 2015 and the full-year goal can be achieved.
