1st International Conference on Silicon Photovoltaics
17 April 2011 - 20 April 2011
, Germany

Special Topic in 2011: Advanced Cells and Modules

The world is experiencing an unprecedented growth rate of photovoltaics – a technology that is expected to be one of the pillars of the future energy supply. Among the PV technologies crystalline silicon solar cells play the major role.
Today over 80% of the solar cells fabricated word-wide are based on crystalline silicon. The impact of this technology is also reflected by the fact that it is the number one topic at all international PV conferences. The number of researchers and scientific papers published in this field has grown from year to year, showing that research and innovation in this established technology is still alive and kicking!

PV, the 1st International Conference on Silicon Photovoltaics, will focus on the science and technology of crystalline silicon solar cells and modules. Since the progress of silicon photovoltaics is mainly technology-driven, SiliconPV will be an important forum for the international community. An international committee comprised of well-known scientists from companies and institutes will select the best abstracts to form a high-level scientific program. SiliconPV will feature inspiring invited talks, oral and poster presentations describing the most recent advances in the field, a platform for intensive discussions among experts and the adequate publication of the conference papers.

In the first year we will focus on “Advanced Cells and Modules”, one of the hot topics in silicon photovoltaics. The technical organization of SiliconPV will be carried out by PSE. Fraunhofer ISE will host this first conference in Freiburg, Germany. In the following years the conference will be hosted by other research institutions in Europe.

To put it in a nutshell: SiliconPV will be a conference from scientists for scientists!

We are looking forward to fascinating scientific contributions and vivid discussions on one of the most interesting research topics: Silicon Photovoltaics.
