VIPV Alliance – Coming Soon! 

A workgroup to promote Vehicle-integrated Photovoltaics (VIPV) as a core source for electricity in transport.

Vehicle Integrated Photovoltaics (VIPV) becomes a reality with the need for EV’s to be powered by renewable electricity. But this is only the tip of the iceberg since PV-powered cars are being developed, and solar-produced green hydrogen is increasingly announced as a promising energy vector for the decarbonization of transport.

2021  Events

Solar Industry Forum - Large Size Cell Technology Webinar

Mar 25, 2021, 02:00 PM in Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna
This event is complimentary. Registration is required.

One of the exciting technology changes currently ongoing in the PV sector is the increase in wafer size. Such change, pushed by some key manufacturers is poised to have tremendous effects on the cells and modules markets. Design changes, manufacturing challenges, and cost implications might change completely the PV module landscape in the coming years.

This event will discuss the implications for manufacturing PV, and especially the impacts on the cells and modules manufacturing, with an additional focus on competitiveness questions.

ETIP-PV 2021 - Solar PV Big & Beyond, Virtual Event - 19-20 May 2021

‘Solar PV Big & Beyond’ – Delivering the 2030 Climate Targets 

ETIP PV Annual Conference

As part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission proposed in September 2020 to raise the 2030 greenhouse gas emission reduction target, including emissions and removals, to at least 55% compared to 1990.

The Annual Conference of the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics will discuss the challenges of delivering these 2030 climate targets to Europe. The EU has to move towards a climate-neutral economy and has to implement its commitments under the Paris Agreement by updating its Nationally Determined Contribution. ETIP PV supports all activities and steps to be taken to make Europe a leader in green energy and to build an independent, clean energy supply.

The event will take place online and will cover four sessions with a series of live panel discussions on
May 19 & 20, 2021 from 2 pm – 5:30 pm CET (Brussels Time)
