The PV industry and market in 2013 – SolarPlaza stages top-level PV vision and strategy conference “The Solar Future II” on June 8 in Munich, Germany
SolarPlaza´s second “Solar Future Conference” is a platform to hear and meet business leaders in the global solar PV market. The conference will focus on vision and strategies related to solar industry supply, market demand, technology, business strategy, cost, and financial trends. It will take place in the same city as the world´s largest trade fair for solar technology – the Intersolar Europe – that starts one day later, on June 9.
At this top-level conference, the world’s leading CEOs, gurus, experts and analysts will provide valuable insights in how the PV industry and the PV market will look in 2013. The one-day conference is subdivided in four sessions: the gurus and analysts´ visions, the upstream and downstream players´ visions and a session on the large-scale use of PV.
The speakers will explain, for example, how crystalline silicon can compete with thin-film technologies, which business model will survive, when inverter shortages will be overcome and if feed-in tariffs will still be necessary in 2013. In addition, they will discuss what the cost per kWh will be for solar electricity and what will be needed to realise the global mass introduction of PV. In the afternoon, there will be a panel discussion with the audience.
The conference takes place on June 8 from 8:30 am to 5:15 pm in the Sheraton Munich Arabellapark hotel. It costs 695 Euros net. Further information and the registration form can be found at www.thesolarfuture.com.
