PVinMotion - Virtual Event - 6-8 December 2021

Supported event!

PVinMotion is the world’s first scientific conference dedicated to vehicle-integrated photovoltaics.

True to this year’s motto – “Solutions for Vehicle Integration” – the conference brings together renowned experts from the worlds of science and industry to showcase their innovative work among friends, colleagues, and the global PV community.

Our pronounced aim is to explore cutting-edge technologies and frameworks of integrating PV into different vehicles and together take advantage of the current, unprecedented momentum in both VIPV research and application.

To this end, PVinMotion provides a seminal platform for scientists and researchers in PV and materials, vehicle manufacturers, module producers, electronics and materials suppliers, consultants, advisers, and designers to meet, network and exchange ideas.

The first PVinMotion will take place from December 6-8, 2021 as a virtual event and will be hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg, Germany. For the 2021 conference, cars and trucks are in focus but there will of course also be ample time and opportunity to discuss further applications such as boats, airplanes, or trains as well.

VIPV Alliance 

A new 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.
