SiliconPV Conference from April 11-13, 2023
The conference covers a variety of exciting topics around crystalline silicon for photovoltaic application, which is still the leading technology for solar electricity generation!
Join the SiliconPV week either online or on-site and keep up to date on all aspects on crystalline silicon PV including hybrid tandems with silicon bottom cells, simulations/characterization, p-type and n-type solar cells bankability and a lot more!
'PV is the technology to hasten the energy transition and it can be done big, already now, and in the future with much better technologies. Compared to the current commercial PV technologies conversion efficiencies can be doubled by applying multijunction PV, prices can be reduced by another factor two to three, PV can be fully integrated in every surface, and its environmental impact can be minimized. I am looking forward to hearing the latest results on novel technologies.'
nPV Workshop from April 13-14, 2023
Taking place directly after the SiliconPV conference with one overlapping day, the workshop provides a complete overview of all trends, innovations and developments of n-type technology. The nPV Workshop is hosted by the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands.
Combining offshore wind and floating solar to reduce costs of green hydrogen
The recently granted innovative research project SENSE-HUB, led by TNO, addresses the integration of various energy system modules for the Dutch North Sea. The synergies between offshore wind, offshore solar and hydrogen production at sea will be considered.
Paved dykes are promising for solar panel application
A study of the possibilities for adding solar panels to dykes shows that solar panels placed on a paved dyke surface are the most suitable and can be applied without much additional research.
Europe explores potential of solar powered vehicles
An international public-private consortium will address how solar-powered vehicles can support the transition to an all-electric transport system in the EU.
Angèle Reinders new director Solliance
Angèle Reinders, professor at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), has been appointed Solliance's new director. Reinders will lead the new broad focus of the Dutch/Flemish/German solar energy partnership.
Platform Offshore Solar: 3 gigawatt peak (GWp) of solar power by 2030
The Platform Offshore Solar (POS) was officially launched on 1 January 2023. For now, the platform consists of a core group of Dutch companies whose ambition is the development and roll-out of offshore solar power, together with TNO.
