Why join WCPEC-8?

The 8th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion offers a unique opportunity to meet and exchange with experts from all PV sectors and all regions of the world. With our combined knowledge, we will drive forward the energy transition and scale up the global solar industry to the terawatt era. To achieve this, we need close collaboration between R&D and industry as well as profound global knowledge transfer.

Our conference General Chair, Dr. Alessandra Scognamiglio (ENEA), represents the passionate and positive spirit and drive we need for this change. In her s message, she addresses the challenges photovoltaics is facing and what we can do to facilitate the transition to a sustainable future in which solar PV has a key role.
Let her words inspire you to join us at WCPEC-8!

The General Chairs of the World Conference on Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conversion and its International Advisory Committee would like to convey this statement regarding Ukraine:

We are shocked and more than concerned about this invasion on the people of Ukraine which violates not only international law but takes under attack our values of freedom and self-determination. Our thoughts and hearts are with the Ukrainian people, colleagues and scientists and all protesting worldwide, including in Russia.

WCPEC combines the three largest and most prominent international PV conferences

A global get together

The WCPEC-8 combines the three largest and most prominent international PV conferences: the European PV Solar Energy Conference (39th EU PVSEC), the Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (IEEE PVSC-51) and the International PV Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC-32). After being in place for more than a quarter of a century, the WCPEC, being held every four years, is firmly established among the global PV community as THE event for the greatest minds and experts in various PV sectors to meet and discuss, to exchange and network!

Safety Regulations

After two years of organising online conferences, we are extremely pleased to hold the 8th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion in 2022 as a physical event in Milan and meet with you in person again.

Not only are we looking forward to great scientific sessions, parallel events and industry formats in a truly international setting, but we are excited to welcome you in person and foster exchange and networking opportunities among the global PV community.You can rest assured, that we, as organisers, have your best interest at heart and have a sophisticated hygiene and security concept in place that complies with the official safety and health regulations of the Italian government to make sure every participant is and feels safe and protected, while enjoying the advantages of getting together and connecting with fellow PV experts.

Nevertheless, we are monitoring the current situation very carefully, and are ready to take action if needed. You can trust that the health and well-being of our participants is our top priority.

Conclusively, the WCPEC will definitely take place in September, and we are confident that the situation will allow for an in-person event.
We are looking forward to seeing you all in Milan from 26 – 30 September 2022.
