Photovoltaic Devices Manufacturing Issues – From Laboratory to Mass Production EUROCONFERENCE
Datum: 15. – 20.10.2004
Ort: Kranjska Gora (SLO), Steiermark
Adresse: Kranjska Gora, Kranjska Gora (SLO)
The aim of the conference is to apply the results from the first conference Photovoltaics and Environment (Granada, 2003) and focus on the large-scale production and application of PV in the future. Ecological and economical aspects of mass production of the different cell types in the GW-scale will be examined and speakers with a broad experience in today's PV-production will give their views on existing production methods, possible future improvements and up-scaling. The mass application of PV as a major source of electricity will be scrutinised with respect to the impact on the grids, usage of existing buildings and open space.
The conference will provide an intense forum to researchers from industry and academic institutions to exchange their views on new developments and strategies as well as to form new collaborations. The set up of the programme is multidisciplinary in order to promote the cross-fertilisation of different disciplines, technologies and developments. Leading scientists and representatives from companies will refer about the latest research results and developments. In addition there will be poster sessions, informal working group sessions and round table discussions. To assure an efficient exchange and transfer of the knowledge of the photovoltaics and environment the number of the participants will be limited to about 100. Limited number of grants will be available for younger scientists and INCO scientists.
