AfricaPVSEC - Africa Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition

7 days left to submit an abstract

AfricaPVSEC is a new initiative partnering EU PVSEC and SNEC for promotion and exchange in the photovoltaic solar energy sector. It brings together leading experts, researchers, public authorities, representatives of international organizations, donors, NGOs.

Remember that only 7 DAYS remain to submit an abstract with your latest scientific achievements and findings!

Deadline: Wednesday 15 January 2014

The first Africa PVSEC is organized in Durban, South Africa, and highlights the fact that there is not only a rapidly growing African scientific community in the area of Solar Photovoltaic Power Generation, but that the installation of solar photovoltaic electricity generation systems is accelerating in many African countries.

Africa PVSEC is aimed as an international platform to present and discuss the latest scientific results as well as to network amongst each other and enhance the visibility towards industrial and policy stakeholders. For this reason the conference programme has three main topics, which cover the wide spectrum of photovoltaics ranging from fundamental material research to business and policy assessments:

Topic 1: PV Technologies, Cells, Modules, Systems
Materials studies for solar cells and modules, solar cell improvements and characterisation (all types of solar cells), PV modules, BOS components

Topic 2 : Implementation (Technical) and Standardisation
PV system reliability and availability, stand-alone systems, mini-grids, grid integration of PV systems, standardization as tool for trade, innovation and cost reduction

Topic 3 : Enabling Environment (Economical)
PV business opportunities; Cost of PV systems in Africa, business models for mini-grids, PV in electricity markets, Financing PV in Africa, PV globalization, enabling regulatory frameworks; policy developments.
