All eyes in the industry will shortly be on the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition taking place from 6-10 September at the Feria Valencia fairground in Spain. Here PES presents its exclusive preview of the event which could not have come at a more crucial time for the industry.
This year’s PV Industry Exhibition will spread over eight large exhibition halls at the Feria Valencia fairground, covering an exhibition area of 80,000 sq m.
Following requests, the exhibition area has been further extended this year compared to 65,000 sq m in Hamburg last year, to accommodate more than 950 exhibitors from around the world. Manufacturers and suppliers of PV production equipment and materials will account for some 40 per cent while manufacturers of cells and modules will be occupying 37 per cent of the total exhibition space and represent the two largest PV industry sectors at this 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC).
For some years now, EU PVSEC has combined a respected international scientific conference with a renowned PV Industry Exhibition and trade fair. During five days of conference and four days of trade fair, new products and technical innovations from all areas of the PV industry and from all over the world are on show. This major PV solar event is supported by European and international organisations like the European Commission, UNESCO – United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation – Natural Sciences Sector, WCRE – World Council for Renewable Energy, the International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) and by a close institutional co-operation with the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA). The Technical Programme is coordinated by the European Commission, DG Joint Research Centre.
