EU PVSEC is a fixed appointment in the calendar of PV experts – and has been for decades. In the 33rd edition from 25 to 29 September the global PV R&D community will meet in Amsterdam to discuss the latest developments and innovations.

Research and technology innovations, as well as policy and strategy framework conditions – the future of photovoltaics will be shaped by a unique alliance between researchers, industry, and politics at the EU PVSEC 2017.

Over 1250 abstracts have been received for the Call for Papers of the 33rd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC).

Arno Smets, General Chairman of the upcoming EU PVSEC 2017 commented, ‘I am very happy with the large number of abstracts submitted. The submissions demonstrate that the interest in photovoltaics keeps on growing.’

The abstracts were received from corresponding authors in 70 countries. Most abstracts were handed in from Germany with a share of around 21%, followed by the host country The Netherlands (8%). Around half of the top 10 respondents came from European countries, including France (5%), Italy (4%), Switzerland (4%) and Spain (3%).
