The EU PVSEC 2017 Conference programme is structured in keynote, plenary, oral and visual presentations and covers the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications, focusing on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends. The EU PVSEC thus strengthens its established leading role in science and technology among the players of the global PV sector.
The COP-21 Agreement came into force on 4th November 2016, having reached the threshold for ratification by over 55 parties representing at least 55% of global emissions already in October. Dr. Nigel Taylor, European Commission Joint Research Centre, Ispra, Italy, and Technical Programme Chair: “The global PV community needs to develop energy systems capable of delivering major greenhouse emission reductions, while ensuring sustainable development opportunities. But it probably won't be PV as we know it today, and this is where European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition comes in”.
EU PVSEC 2016 was again the world's largest PV research event with 1742 participants from 73 countries.
The programme of keynote, plenary, oral and visual presentations is selected after assessment by independent reviewers. Final papers are published in the EU PVSEC Proceedings, a highly respected conference series going back to 1992. They are DOI coded, and permanently and unequivocally citable.
EU PVSEC Background
EU PVSEC takes place at different venues in Europe since 1977. The event uniquely combines scientific, technological, industrial and application-related issues from the perspective of research and development, industry and policy. With more than 1,000 keynote, plenary, oral and visual presentations, as well as several parallel workshops, expert panels and specific industry fora, the EU PVSEC counts as the most outstanding PV science-to-science and science-to-industry platform.
The EU PVSEC conference programme is coordinated by the European Commission Joint Research Centre.
