Sneak peek of the first plenary session
As it is almost a tradition of the EUPVSEC, we would
like to provide a preview on the plenary sessions of
the WCPEC-8. The half-hour plenary presentations are
an excellent opportunity to get briefed about major
trends and developments in the technology and of the
wide application of photovoltaics in general.
Therefore, even if you are not specialist the specific
topics, it is worthwhile to attend.
We will whet your appetite for the three plenaries in
a sequence, today we describe what you can expect from
the very first plenary of the 8th World conference on
Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conversion in Milan.
We start today with the very first of many sessions of
this big conference: On Monday, 26th September, 2022,
at 8:30 there will be the plenary 3AP.1 titled
Reliable and High-Performance PV Modules. The title reflects already today’s trends and
emphasis in PV Module development for a global
Tera-watt market, and there will be a presentation for
each of the trends, and a final one on the modelling
of the electrical performance of modules.
As the majority of PV Modules today are produced in
China, we are particularly proud to have with
Yifeng Chen a very renowned first
plenary speaker at the conference. As Vice-Director at
Trina Solar in Changzhou,China, he is Group Leader of
High Efficiency Solar Cells R&D, and his
presentation 3AP.1.1 is titled
“Investigation of Technology Evolution of
PV Industry: Learning from Historical and Recent
Progress”.It promises an excellent overview about the history
and future of solar cell development not only from the
perspective of a major manufacturer in China, but also
from his co-authors of UNSW Sydney and AMROCK,
Australia. The presentation will not only give details
on current efficiencies of the Trinasolar’s PERC
technology, but postulates a new, 50% increased wafer
size for the future generation of cells. He will claim
that by fitting historical data the major improvements
in PERC technology will come from efficiency
improvements. Also, he will detail future equipment
costs and how they influence the learning curve, also
considering current difficulties in the supply
The next presentation 3AP.1.2 at 9:00 will be given by
Peter Hacke the from NREL, USA and is
“Evaluation of Bifacial Module Technologies
with Combined-Accelerated Stress Testing
Chair, International Advisory Committee

We look forward to enjoying this exceptional event
with you in person in September.
Meet the Student Award Finalists
We are pleased to announce that 20 student award
finalists have been selected for the upcoming 8th
World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion.
They stand out due to their excellent submissions for
the WCPEC-8. The aim of the student awards is to
encourage high-quality work amongst young researchers
and to recognise the most remarkable and outstanding
research work in the field of PV.
