Portland, ME - Building on the success from the 2008 edition, IntertechPira is pleased to announce that the 4th annual Photovoltaics Summit 2009 is set for June 1-3, 2009 at the Hotel Kabuki in San Francisco, CA, US.

Co-Chaired by Dr Jean Posbic, Director of Projects of BP Solar and Dr Tom Surek, PV Consultant and former PV Program Manager of NREL, this year's program will provide a versatile examination of the current PV market and offer viable solutions from industry leaders.Derived form real case studies, conference sessions will focus on the latest government initiatives including policy changes and the role of utilities, global market and economic trends, technology updates within the manufacturing and materials sectors, overviews of current solar thermal and concentrated solar power applications and thin film and organic PV technical challenges and end-user perspectives. Also featured in the program includes a complete financial analysis for venture capitalist investment and financing opportunities. With alternative energy on the rise, this conference provides an exclusive platform for anyone interested in learning how the US market is ready to move forward with the times.

Conference structure:

During plenary sessions, expert speakers will assess PV market trends, technical developments, and application related advances through presentations, question-and-answer sessions and panel discussions. Keynote presentations will be allocated 30 minutes for the speaker followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. All other presentations will be allocated 20 minutes for the speaker with 5 minutes or questions and discussion. Throughout the conference, there will be a number of networking events including hosted luncheons, breaks and receptions.

Two pre-conference seminars will be held prior to the conference on Monday, June 1.

Upcoming conference:

Following Photovoltaics Summit 2009, we are also pleased to announce the first annual Concentrated Solar Thermal Power 2009 conference and exhibition set for June 4-5, 2009 at the Hotel Kabuki. This event will address opportunities and challenges for large scale solar electric generation through concentrated solar power thermal (CST) technologies. CST Power 2009 will bring together the entire energy supply chain ranging from material suppliers to utilities to discuss and debate issues affecting widespread adoption of CSP as a reliable and cost competitive energy source. Topics of discussion will include: assessment of utility scale solar power market and economic conditions (includes investing in solar technologies and federal incentives); technical updates and developments and case studies for implementing CST for large scale power generation. Program development is underway.

A global effort

IntertechPira is pleased to see the launch of the inaugural Photovoltaics Summit Europe as June 2009 becomes PV Month across our conference event platform. Due to take place on June 30 - July 2, 2009, at the Crowne Plaza Rome St Peter's in Rome, Italy, this event will take stock of recent changes in PV markets across the whole of Europe, evaluate markets with in depth expert analysis and consider present and future investment trends. Both a networking event and source of the latest knowledge on the whole array of issues surrounding the photovoltaics supply chain, Photovoltaics Summit Europe will follow our proven event formula, bringing a fresh event to a new audience in Europe.
