EPIA organises its first international Thin Film Conference

EPIA organises its first international Thin Film Conference

More than 300 experts from the thin film sector are expected to gather in Munich on November 13 for the first European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) International Thin Film Conference.


With a growing demand for PV products in the European and American markets, all technological solutions are expanding and thin film has become particularly strong. This first conference aims to provide a dedicated international discussion platform for the photovoltaic Thin Film industry.

According to EPIA projections, 4 GW of thin film production capacity is expected to be available by the end of 2010. This would represent 20 per cent of the overall PV module capacity. Questions that aim to be addressed by the conference include the potential for cost reduction offered by Thin Film technologies and the ability to reach grid parity by a quicker means.

The conference will present the current state of the PV thin film sector and provide an insight into global market trends, the latest technological achievements, successful investments in the sector and a full analysis, from material and equipment suppliers to module manufacturers.

A detailed programme and all information are available on this dedicated website: www.thinfilmconference.org
