Sneak peek of the second plenary session
I want to continue to make you curious about the plenaries of the 8th
WCPEC. You should not miss the Wednesday, 28 September 2022, as we
scheduled three plenary sessions in sequence for the whole
The first plenary session 4CP.1, starting already at 8:30 is along the theme “PV Works Everywhere”.
Certainly not a surprise for you that PV is very versatile but think
about it a bit: Coal, Oil and Gas is NOT everywhere, and the
availability of PV allows so many applications.
The integration of PV directly in vehicles is one of the feasible
options to make transport emission-free, and this is why this topic is
also about Vehicle Integrated PV - VIPV. The plenary 4CP.1.1 “The Photovoltaic Potential of a Fleet of Urban Vehicles” will be given by Mr. Hesan Ziar
of the Delft University of Technology, in The Netherlands. But this
presentation is not about integrating PV onto cars, no, Mr. Hesan Ziar
and his co-authors report a methodology to calculate the power generated
by a fleet of urban ships applicable to the 2746 Dutch general cargo
vessels. The results are very encouraging, estimating more than 200 GWh
of energy available and, best of all, the methodology and
parameterisation seems to work also with a fleet of electric cars in an
As the title of this plenary session says, PV is everywhere. However, it
is also close to wildfires in Australia, in New South Wales (NSW) which
seems to be struck by real climate change consequences. The
presentation 4CP.1.2, given by Ethan Ford, titled “Impact of the 2019-2020 Australian Black Summer Wildfires on Photovoltaic Energy Production”
analyses the PV energy impact of the months-long haze caused by
wildfires, taking the monitoring data of 160 residential areas
relatively close to the wildfires. PV output was reduced both by
atmospheric attenuation by aerosol particular matter and subsequent
deposition on the module’s surface. The analysis shows that the power
loss is proportional to the particular matter (PM) concentration, on
from there the authors derive an estimated loss of revenue close to 10
million AUD (6.5 Mio. €) when applied to all PV systems in the zone. Let
us cross fingers for NSW, I would not exclude an update in this talk
regarding the impact of the current flooding….!
Chair, International Advisory Committee
World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion
Submit your late-breaking abstract
you know that you can still submit your research to the WPCEC-8 even
though the full conference programme is already fixed? Late-breaking
abstracts are welcome until shortly before the event. And there are
various oral presentation slots reserved for those late submissions.
Be part of the biggest scientific PV conference in 2022 and submit your late abstract now.
WCPEC-8 programme and tickets
offers its participants an extensive programme, including various
parallel events. But the focus is not only on the scientific conference
with knowledge exchange and networking opportunities. WCPEC-8 is also
the place where PV research meets industry and business connections are
In addition, WCPEC-8 wants to emphasize the international and
educational spirit of this event, by introducing the PV Academy, an
academic format which will teach about the fundamentals of different PV
technologies, and by offering the Online ticket, to allow participants
from all around the world that cannot travel to Milan to benefit from
the knowledge concentrated in one place.
Choose the best option for you! Whether you want to join the PV academy,
the exhibition, join the conference dinner or the entire conference in
person or virtually*. Find your perfect option here:
*Please note that speakers and chairpersons must attend the WCPEC-8 in person to be part of their session.
Exhibition: 85% already booked
you want to present your company, products and services to the global
PV industry, you need to be quick. 85% of the WCPEC-8 exhibition space
has already been booked. We are happy to see that the industry is so
eager to meet again in person to exchange and discuss.
If you, too, would like to exhibit, secure your spot now!
Whom to meet
you are curious about whom you will meet at this year’s event, take a
look at our llist of organisations and institutions represented at the
WCPEC-8. As of today, participants from over 50 countries and over 180 companies and organisations
will join us in Milan to gather for world’s biggest scientific PV event
in 2022. See for yourself and join the global PV community.
EU PVSEC LinkedIn Group
the occasion of the 8th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy
Conversion, the EU PVSEC would like to further support the international
exchange and promote job opportunities in the field of solar PV.
Therefore, EU PVSEC set up a LinkedIn Group to create a dialogue between
employers from industry and research and PV experts looking for a new
Find new job opportunities in the PV sector
We encourage you to join our LinkedIn Group
and share new opportunities with fellow PV experts and newcomers. The
group also aims to inspire lively discussions and exchange on PV topics
and well as to strengthen the network of the global PV community.
We’re looking forward to connecting with you!

PV Tech Power 31
The new edition of our downstream solar journal, PV Tech Power volume 31
, is now available to download, featuring articles surrounding the decarbonisation of solar manufacturing and deployment.
Our Market Watch section details how three of Europe’s most prolific
solar markets – Germany, Italy and the UK- are faring as installations
look set to accelerate, while our Storage & Smart Power section
explores supply chain constraints on the battery manufacturing side and
the role of energy storage in grid operations.
