The 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference is held at the Feria Valencia
Valencia (ES) - 06/09/10 - 10/09/10
25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference
The World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion brings together the three most important global scientific and strategic PV Conferences: 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.
Giovanni de Santi, Director of the JRC Institute for Energy (IE), is chairing this event which will be attended by some 4,500 conference delegates and around 40,000 visitors for the PV industry exhibition where around 900 companies will display new trends and technologies.
The JRC has played a major role in the conference since 1994, and this year is once again responsible for the scientific programme. During the conference, the IE's ninth annual Photovoltaics Status Report was released. The PV status report summarises and evaluates the results of a survey of more than 300 companies worldwide. The study highlights that, in 2009, newly installed photovoltaic (PV) cells world-wide produced a peak amount of electricity estimated at 7.4 GW, out of which 5.8 GW was located in Europe.
