ETIP PV Online Conference

Online • 04 May 2022 - 05 May 2022

Photovoltaics (PV) is a key technology in the energy transition. Prospective scenarios demonstrate a converging view on the necessary deep electrification of most economic sectors, only with solar energy can we deliver electricity in very large quantities, at affordable cost, in an environmentally & societally sustainable way.

Shaping Europe's energy future with photovoltaics

But what is the current status of PV? Which political initiatives are ongoing and are additional ones needed? How can Europe’s position along the PV value chain be strengthened? What are future challenges as PV deployment is increasing towards Terawatt levels? And which are innovative technological solutions for a sustainable Terawatt-PV? These are some of the questions that experts will address and discuss in the virtual ETIP PV conference 2022.

Programme highlights

Day 1: Wednesday, 04 May 2022 – 2 pm – 6:00 pm CET

  • Session 1: Strengths of PV and ongoing initiatives
  • Session2: Technological sovereignty for PV

Day 2: Thursday, 05 May 2022 – 2 pm – 6:00 pm CET

  • Session 3: Future challenges for the TW-era
  • Session 4: Technology for sustainable TW-PV

Wim Sinke, Vice-Chairman ETIP PV and Principal Scientist of TNO Solar Energy, about the conference:

‘The annual ETIP PV Conferences offer a unique opportunity for an inspiring and informative deep dive into the hot topics of the solar PV sector. For this year’s edition, sustainability has been chosen as a connecting theme, both in relation to manufacturing and large-scale deployment. This way, the Conference relates to some of the big challenges Europe faces: fighting climate change by an accelerated energy transition with PV as the key element and seizing economic opportunities as well as reducing strategic energy dependence by strengthening the European PV value chain. Highly recommended!’
