EU PVSEC 2013: Comprehensive Conference Programme with more than 1,600 Presentations

Programme covers the entire scope of Photovoltaic technologies, applications, markets and policies -- The detailed Conference Programme of the 28th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) is available, featuring more than 1,600 Keynote, Plenary, Oral and Visual Presentations.      The EU PVSEC 2013 will take place from 30 September to 04 October 2013 at Parc des Expositions Paris Nord Villepinte in Paris, France.

The five-day Conference is combined with the three-day PV Industry Exhibition, held from 01 to 03 October 2013.

Globally installed cumulative PV capacity has surpassed the 100 GW mark in 2012 and will triple by 2018 according to the new Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report of the International Energy Agency - IEA. Reflecting that PV solar energy is now becoming a major and mature electricity source, the Conference Programme of the EU PVSEC 2013 extends it focus on application and policy-oriented topics with the inclusion of the related players. New materials, PV system aspects including reliability, dispatchability and grid integration issues and the role of PV as building material are examples of key topics addressed in Paris.


Dr. Arnulf Jäger-Waldau, European Commission, DG JRC and EU PVSEC Technical Programme Chairman: ‘The world PV community meets at the EU PVSEC 2013 to present and discuss the most recent innovations and developments along the entire PV value chain. Dedicated sessions on the role of PV in the electricity markets, PV globalisation and new business opportunities in the context of a further increasing global deployment of PV systems complement this comprehensive programme. The Conference offers overviews of the latest research findings, industrial progress and political landscape through Keynote and Plenary Presentations and it provides specialised thematic sessions, were details are presented in a focused and technical manner.’


The combination of this leading Conference with an international PV Industry Exhibition and additional Parallel Events that offer a deep insight into specific topics, forms the unique character of the EU PVSEC. Participants benefit from multiple synergies and networking opportunities at this Business-to-Business, Business-to-Science and Science-to-Industry platform.


The Programme of this Conference is composed by the international Scientific Committee made up of more than 200 research and industry experts from the global PV sector. The Conference Programme is structured along the following main subjects:

 Material Studies, New Concepts, Ultra-High Efficiency and Space Technology

 Wafer-Based Silicon Solar Cells and Materials Technology

 Thin Film Solar Cells

 Components for PV Systems

 PV Systems and Applications

 PV – a Major Electricity Source


The Conference Registration is open. Registration before 31 July 2013 entitles to benefit from lower early bird fees. More on
