EU PVSEC is now one of the premiere PV conferences globally, attracting over 1000 papers and about 3000 participants each year. This year's event will be held in Hamburg, Germany from the 14-18 September.
The meeting will further develop the existing partnership with the Greek General Secretariat of Research and Technology (GSRT), looking at collaboration in the areas of energy, maritime affairs, food, health, environment and security.
The EU PVSEC is the largest international Conference for Photovoltaic research, technologies and applications, and at the same time a top international PV Industry Exhibitions. It gathers the global PV community to conduct business, to network and to present and discuss the latest developments and innovations in Photovoltaics. It is the world renowned science-to-science, business-to-business and science-to-industry platform with a full and only focus on the global PV Solar sector.
The technical programme of this conference is co-ordinated by the JRC.
Newly re-furbished facilities of the JRC's European Solar Test Installation (ESTI) in Ispra will be inaugurated on Monday 24 June 2013. The upgraded laboratories allow ESTI to assess the performance of new and improved photovoltaic (PV) devices, to perform pre-normative research and to help develop international standards.
