WCPEC Award Winner
International Advisory Committee for the WCPEC will present the 2022
WCPEC Award for advancement of photovoltaic science, technology and
application on the occasion of the 8th World Conference on Photovoltaic
Energy Conversion, with co-sponsorship of the European Commission, the
EU PVSEC, the IEEE Electron Devices Society, and the PVSEC Advisory
We are pleased to announce, that the WCPEC Award 2022 will be presented to Professor Martin Green
for his outstanding contributions to advancement of photovoltaic
science and technology. He is a Scientia Professor of the University New
South Wales, Australia.
On behalf of the whole team behind the WCPEC-8 we cordially congratulate
him on this great achievement! We are looking forward to his speech in
the Opening Ceremony, on Monday 26 September, of the 8th World
Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion.
Take a look at all of Professor Martin Green's major contributions
Sneak peek of the third plenary session
we will bring you the preview of the last plenary of the WCPEC-8 on
Friday, 30th September 2022. In fact, it will be the last session before
the end of the conference. After a week of research papers and reports
on technical challenges, this plenary session will be dedicated to the
role of Photovoltaics in and for the global society. The headline of the
plenary session 5EP.1 is therefore “PV in the TW Era – Scenarios for
Sustainable Energy Future”.
We start with “A Critical Review of Circular Economy for Photovoltaic Modules – Status, Challenges, and Opportunities”
, where Garvin Heath
NREL, Golden, United States will give key insights, gaps and
opportunities for research and implementation of a circular economy
solar PV. Considering that current projections foresee nearly 1.6TW
deployed PV by 2050 in the United States alone, the issues of material
supply, end of life management, environmental and societal impacts, and
economic costs come into the focus of research. The authors screened
nearly 1800 journal articles in their systematic literature review. You
will have in this plenary the opportunity to save time in reading so
many papers and instead get briefed directly about the current
state-of-knowledge of PV in the circular economy.
