The European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) has appointed Prof. Dr. Arno H.M. Smets General Chairman for its 33rd edition, which will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 25–29 September 2017.

“I am honored and proud to chair the world’s largest international scientific photovoltaics conference in my home country,” says Smets. “Research has played a crucial role in making solar energy the lowest cost power generation technology in many regions already today. Now it’s about quickly proceeding on this path to make sure solar power takes a much larger role in our fight against climate change as soon as possible,” he adds.

Smets is Professor for Solar Energy in the Photovoltaics Material and Devices group at the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).

 

EU PVSEC – a platform for scientists and industry

“The EU PVSEC conference and exhibition is the perfect platform for scientists and industry to exchange the latest developments and experience in all fields of solar – from further improving incumbent silicon cells, getting next generation technologies ready for mass production, and working together on the right solutions to re-build our energy system so it can be based on flexible and clean power sources led by solar power,” says Smets.

 

Call for Papers open until 10 February 2017

At TU Delft, Smets is a lecturer for BSc and MSc courses on Photovoltaics and Sustainable Energy.

“Education on solar energy is key for the fast transformation of our energy system. I invite everyone active in solar research and development to share her and his work at the upcoming EU PVSEC in Amsterdam,” says Smets. The Call for Papers is open until February 10th, 2017.
