Further presentations will be announced shortly with the publication of the Parallel Events Programme that offers insight into specific technology, market and business themes.
The Conference Programme is structured along the following main topics:
- New Materials and Concepts for Solar Cells and Modules
- Wafer-Based Silicon Solar Cell and Materials Technology
- Thin Film Solar Cells and Modules
- Concentrator and Space Applications
- Operation, Performance, Reliability and Sustainability of Photovoltaics
- PV Applications and Integration
- PV Economics, Markets and Policies
- 84 Conference Sessions and 7 Parallel Events adhering to technology and innovation provide for a week of excellence.
- 45% of the presentations are contributed by specialists from countries outside Europe.
Participate in the World’s Largest Specialist PV Solar Conference
The experts of the PV solar branch meet in Munich to discuss new concepts, trends and developments in science and industry. The EU PVSEC provides the most inspiring platform for dialogue and information exchange across the World.
The international Conference programme will be structured in plenary, oral and visual presentations and cover the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications, focusing on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends. Now, that Photovoltaic Solar Energy is becoming a major electricity source, the EU PVSEC extended its focus to applied and policy-oriented topics. The EU PVSEC thus strengthens its established leading role in science and technology among the players of the global PV sector.
Detailed Conference Programme / Outline of the week
The entire scope of PV innovations covered in 1,000+ high-level presentations.
First days of March saw a big step forward in the preparation of the EU PVSEC 2016 conference programme. There was a great response to the call for abstracts, with contributions from 6482 authors and co-authors from 88 countries, so the 140 paper reviewers and 50 topic organisers had a very busy February evaluating all the submissions.
Over 2-4 March both the Programme Committee, with the Topic Organisers, and the Executive Committee met in Brussels to finalise the selection of keynotes, plenaries, oral and visuals, as well as the student awards and the papers for the peer-review journal process. It's confirmed that the programme will be over 5 days (starting first thing Monday 20 June to lunchtime on Friday 24 June). We will inform all authors of the outcome for their abstract soon. The full programme will be available on the web by the end of March 2016.
Once again a big thanks to all the authors and co-authors, as well as to the paper reviewers and topic organisers who did a great job under a very tight time schedule.

Thanks to more than 6,000 authors and co-authors in submitted abstracts from 88 countries, EU PVSEC once again provides the full range of PV knowledge and technologies. Whatever your individual PV interest is – EU PVSEC offers exactly what you are looking for.
The independent international Scientific Committee selected the best abstracts, in order to provide the world’s highest quality of presentations. Keep in touch - the final Conference Programme with all speakers and all 1,000+ presentations listed will be available soon.
