Munich, 29 January 2010 – The European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) and the International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) will present the ‘PV Production Forum 2010’ for photovoltaic manufacturing technologies at the 25th EU PVSEC and 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC-5) on 7 September 2010 in Valencia, Spain.
The programme of the PV Production Forum 2010, an educational workshop in PV production technology, will feature presentations on several topics including silicon and thin-film production, which will be led by IPVEA members and other industry experts. The PV Production Forum 2010 will provide an essential opportunity for networking across all segments of the PV production industry along with informing its participants about the changing dynamics, technologies and developments in the PV manufacturing supply chain. This forum addresses best practices and case studies that can assist PV production management, purchasing staff, and product managers how to increase throughput, efficiency, and save money in their production fabs.
Heinz Ehmann, EU PVSEC Head of Communications: “The PV Production Forum 2010 compliments our high-ranking scientific conference on photovoltaics by adding insights from a production oriented point of view. Establishing the PV Production Forum as an integral part of the EU PVSEC reconfirms the fact that the combination of the world's leading PV solar conference and a premium international PV solar trade show meets the expectations of the global PV communities. We are looking forward to the start of this new forum.”
The 25th EU PVSEC will be also the 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion. This joint event of the global PV communities will take place in Valencia, Spain, from 6-10 September 2010 (Conference: 6-10 September 2010 - Exhibition: 6-9 September 2010). It will unite the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, the 36th US IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference and the 20th Asia/Pacific PV Science and Engineering Conference.
For many years now, the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) combines a very reputable international scientific conference with a leading PV industry exhibition and trade fair. Over 5 days of conference and 4 days of trade fair, new products and technical innovations from all areas of photovoltaics and from all over the world are on show.
This global PV solar event is supported by various European and international organisations such as 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 cooperation with the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA). The Technical Programme is coordinated by the European Commission, DG Joint Research Centre.
