WCPEC-7 World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion


WCPEC-7 web site

Once every 4 years, three of world’s most prominent international photovoltaic technical conferences, the Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC), the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC) and the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialist Conference (IEEE PVSC) merge into a global photovoltaic energy technical forum: the World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC)

The upcoming 7th WCPEC will be held June 10-15, 2018, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort and Conference facility on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The WCPECs have a rich tradition of bringing together, students, innovators, and leaders in PV into a vibrant and highly integrative forum that is conducive to sharing information, gaining knowledge, strengthening collaborations and moving forward the science and technology of Photovoltaics from basic and applied research into large scale manufacturing and deployments. The conference provides a unique opportunity to meet, share and discuss PV-related developments in a timely and influential forum.

Technical Area Overview

This year’s technical program encompasses 10 technical areas that cover the entire spectrum of technical activities in photovoltaic science and engineering and is expected to provide a unique opportunity to share and discuss the latest PV-related developments in what would be the world largest and most influential forum of the end of this decade.

Parallel events & Exhibition

In addition to an exceptional Technical Program, WCPEC 7 will cater its  attendees to a variety of educational and outreach activities; including an exciting Tutorial Program, taught by world’s leading PV specialists. The WCPEC 7 has also engineered number of general public educational and outreach events across the island, like high school solar competitions and a Solar Day, to help enhance the public understanding of solar energy and to share our PV mission and passion with local communities.

The conference Exhibition will showcase the latest developments in PV characterization and manufacturing equipment, and is set to further enhance attendee awareness on latest tools and instrumentation as well as to facilitate exchange between scientists, technical experts and exhibitors.
