24 - 28 October 2016 • Marina Bay Sands Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore
The 26th International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC-26)
History of Asian PVSEC
The Asian Photovoltaic Science and Engineering (PVSEC) conference series started in 1984 in Kobe, Japan, and has evolved into Asia’s biggest scientific-technical PV conference. Since 2006, it has been held internationally, moving annually to guest countries and cities that are highly committed to the adoption of photovoltaic (PV) technology. The main objective of the PVSEC conferences is to give all PV communities a platform to present their latest findings in their area of expertise mainly at the scientific level, along with topics covering product development, new products and market trends.
PVSEC-26 in Singapore in 2016
The PVSEC-26 conference 2016 will be held in Singapore in October 2016 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre. The location is one of the largest, and most prominent, spaces within Singapore and is internationally well known for being a meeting place of people and ideas.
Many market analysts are predicting that in 2016 the PV industry will have fully recovered, and that the PV sector will once more show healthy double-digit revenue growth numbers. Due to these excellent prospects, and the fact that PV markets are presently growing the fastest in Asia, it is expected that PVSEC-26 will attract not only scientists, but also industry players and policy makers in big numbers.
In addition, PVSEC-26 will run in parallel with the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) 2016. This will give the delegates at the PVSEC-26 conference the possibility to explore other energy trends at the many additional side events that cover all types of renewable, fossil and mineral energy sources, with a strong presence of the Singapore financial services sector reflected at the events.
Who should attend?
Scientists and students active in PV related research topics, managers and engineers from the PV industry, and the industry’s suppliers that want to know more about the next options they have for their products and services. Policy makers and government officials that have a vested interest in energy and a sustainable future, project developers and financial experts that are looking for new technologies that could give them a competitive edge, and anybody with an interest in future energy sources and their applications.
How can you participate?
The best way of participating in PVSEC-26 is by submitting an abstract detailing the topic of your expertise along with a short write-up that you want to share with the scientific community. Abstract submission will be opened in early 2016. You can register your email with us in order to keep up to date with the schedule.
Additionally, you should attend the event to learn from the experts in the field. The conference committee consists of renowned scientists who aim to strictly select innovative and cutting-edge contributions to be shared at the conference. The committee will be announced in mid-2015.
Last but not least, you can support the scientific community and PVSEC-26 in Singapore by becoming a sponsor. Your contribution will highlight you amongst the key decision makers of the PV industry and give you the opportunity to interact more closely with the scientists and stakeholders of photovoltaics in Asia.
