The photovoltaic market is still prospering in the world and photovoltaic industry slowly recovers from over capacities. During the last years research and development focused on new products and technologies to reduce costs and increase efficiency as well as reliability. Especially, the manufacturing processes of PV modules as well as silicon wafers are major cost drivers in PV production. Both technologies routes, silicon wafer production and PV module production, made significant progress and brought up a lot of new concepts in research and industry within the last years. Though, successful transfer from research to production needs communication and discussion.
Therefore, in 2014 we established the 2-day conference »PV Days«.
Speakers from research and industry were invited to discuss their new results and technologies on the Weinberg Campus in Halle (Saale), Germany.
After a successful premier in 2014 the second edition on October 27th/28th, 2015 again attracted about 150 participants from 14 different countries.
PV Days 2016 are scheduled for September 27th/28th.
