The conference’s ever expanding content and high standard execution will this year, for the first time, be in the hands of the Intersolar Europe Conference Committee. The array of sessions, workshops and seminars will focus for example on solar heating, pro-cess heat and solar thermal power plants, as well as grid integration and inno-vative storage technologies.
This year, the Intersolar Europe Conference will shine the spotlight on grid integration and innovative storage technologies, two of the main topics within the field of photovoltaics. The sessions “PV Power Plants” and “PV Grid Integration & Energy Storage” provide a comprehensive overview of the status quo and possible future trends, while “European Markets” and “Global Markets” will focus on developments in international photovoltaics (PV) and will kick off the conference on Monday. More detailed market information on PV markets in Germany, California, India and the MENA Region will be given on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Technical innovations in the manufacturing of solar cells and PV modules will be presented in the sessions “Thin Film – Technological Advancements”, “Crystalline Silicon PV – Technological Advancements” and “7th Advanced PV Manufacturing Forum”. The session “Balance of Systems”, taking place on Wednesday, will focus on further developments in inverter technology.
