The conference is being held within the framework of the “3rd Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week”, the world’s largest event for thin-film photovoltaics, in Berlin, at the Technologiepark Adlershof. In addition to a market and technology overview, the themes of quality, logistics and material will also be on the agenda.
The event is directed at the manufacturers of thin film as well as crystalline photovoltaics, solar system integrators and the manufacturers of PV installation systems. Apart from this the event is also addressing the suppliers of automation technology, glass manufacturers, system suppliers of glass application and glass installation systems as well as suppliers to the glass and solar energy sector.
As far as the conference is concerned, Solarpraxis AG, one of the leading know-how providers in the renewable energies industry with many years of experience both as a conference organizer and in the engineering sector, is cooperating with Messe Düsseldorf. This is the continuation of the conference format, which celebrated its successful premiere at glasstec/solarpeq in autumn 2010. glasstec, the most significant international trade fair for the glass industry, as well as the trade fair for solar production technology, solarpeq, had brought together around 200 experts from both industry sectors, who were unanimous in positively assessing this opportunity for dialogue. The event focussed on the increasing significance of the material glass in reducing costs and increasing the degree of effectiveness in photovoltaic applications. With the second SOLAR MEETS GLAS conference this format is now also being established in the period between the fair.
In addition, Messe Düsseldorf and Solarpraxis AG are cooperating abroad within the framework of similar congress formats on the theme of solar energy and glass. As early as 13 January 2011 in Mumbai, the “1st Solar Industry Summit India” is held parallel to GLASSPEX India, a member of the Messe Düsseldorf international glass trade fair family.
