- The PV community towards the energy transition -


The WCPEC consists of different elements that complement each other to cover the whole spectrum PV has to offer.

It is a meeting point for PV experts worldwide, offering a programme that provides an overview and insights beyond one's own field and ensures that topics that yield an interface between sectors and fields can be addressed explicitly.

As the “new king of electricity” solar power has a key role to play in the energy transition and the WCPEC is THE place to discuss the photovoltaic (r)evolution.

- plenary, oral and visual presentations from 5 main topics -


The weekly outline and the detailed Conference Programme are available now!

Message from the Technical Programme Chair

"Dear PV and Energy professional,
I am delighted to share the full scientific programme of the 8th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion, to be hosted in Milan in the week of 26-30 September 2022. Our exciting programme is arranged in 5 themes, covering topics ranging from silicon cells, evolving and emerging technologies and tandems; modules; to PV systems engineering and applications. Finally, the energy transition topic covers the wide range of multidisciplinary efforts required to ensure the rapid deployment of PV technologies on a massive and global scale as a key element of the ecological transition.  This year PV passes a major milestone of 1 TW of installed capacity worldwide, and I see this event as an opportunity to celebrate this achievement and to continue our work to accelerate towards the next major milestone of annual TW deployments by the end of the decade."
