VDMA Photovoltaic Equipment supports solarpeq 2012

The German Machinery & Plant Manufacturers Association (VDMA) runs a Platform for Photovoltaic (PV) Equipment which will be supporting solarpeq – International Trade Fair for Solar Equipment – taking place in Düsseldorf in October 2012.

VDMA PV already supported Messe Düsseldorf in the positioning and implementation of solarpeq at its première in 2010, when it provided its expertise in the coordination of exhibition content.

Also, for 40 years now, the VDMA Glass Technology Forum has been one of the sponsoring organisations of glasstec, the world's leading trade fair for the glass industry, which is closely linked with solarpeq and will take place simultaneously and in close proximity. Moreover, the Glass Technology Forum and VDMA PV are supporting a conference entitled 'Solar Meets Glass' at solarpeq 2012, where interface issues of glass and solar power will be highlighted. At this conference both partners will be contributing their expertise to the choice of subjects and content. Similar to its première in 2010, solarpeq will have a joint stand in Hall 11, managed by VDMA PV. A number of well-known major industry players have already agreed to take part, including Centrotherm Photovoltaics and Siemens.

“We are very pleased to have the support of VDMA Photovoltaic Equipment for solarpeq, as they have a good level of expertise and understand the unique value of a trade fair for PV production equipment in combination with this globally most important glass trade fair,” said Hans Werner Reinhard, in the Board of Managing Directors Messe Düsseldorf responsibility for glasstec and solarpeq.“The combination of solarpeq and glasstec allows a unique and direct exchange of ideas between two industries that can clearly benefit from each other. After all, glass plays a major role in increasing efficiency and reducing the cost of production in PV modules,” said Dr. Peter Fath, Head of Engineering at Centrotherm Photovoltaics AG and chairman of the Board of VDMA.

At the last glasstec/solarpeq in 2010 a total of 1,274 exhibitors from 52 countries offered their products and services in glass machinery, the glass industry, the glazier trade and production technology for photovoltaics. In all, the two trade fairs were visited by over 44,000 experts.

glasstec/solarpeq 2012 will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 23 to 26 October 2012. The conference 'Solar Meets Glass' has been scheduled for the 22 and 23 October 2012. www.messe-duesseldorf.com
