Welcome to the 40th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition. The innovation platform for the global PV solar sector.

The EU PVSEC is the largest international Conference for Photovoltaic research, technologies and applications and at the same time a PV Industry Exhibition, where specialized PV Industry presents technologies, innovations and new concepts in the upstream PV sector. It gathers the global PV community to present and discuss the latest developments in Photovoltaics, to network and to conduct business. It is the world-renowned science-to-science and science-to-industry platform uniquely focused on the global PV Solar sector. The conference scientific programme is coordinated by the European Commission Joint Research Centre.

The over 40 year long history and the diverse programme of the EU PVSEC makes it a landmark event in the scientific PV sector.

For 2023, we are more than delighted to welcome you in person and to invite you to celebrate with us the 40th anniversary of the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition from 18 – 22 SEPTEMBER 2023 IN THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF LISBON.

We cordially invite you to celebrate with us the 40th anniversary of the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition in Lisbon!

EU PVSEC 2023 awaits you!

Message from the Technical Programme Chair

Dear PV and Energy professional,

I am pleased to announce the full scientific programme of the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC), which will be hosted this year in Lisbon in the week of 18-22 September 2023. Our exciting programme is arranged in five topical themes, covering topics ranging from silicon cells, thin films (also including perovskites and tandems) and new concepts; modules (covering design, manufacturing, reliability and performance aspects); PV systems engineering (covering both design and O&M) and applications (including BIPV, agri-PV, floating PV). The PV in the Energy Transition topic covers the wide range of multidisciplinary efforts required to ensure the rapid deployment of PV technologies on a massive and global scale as a key element of the ecological transition (encompassing areas such as energy system integration, finance, scenarios and policy, and societal challenges)."


Scientific Conference

Plenary, Oral & Visual Sessions

Each presentation will be carefully evaluated and selected by the Scientific Committee in coordination with the European Commission Joint Research Centre.

Parallel Events

presentations, workshops, panel discussions

Get adeep insight into specific topics along the most recent PV technology, PV application and market trends and address global decision makers from industry, research, financing and politics.


Give your company a stage and exhibit

The exhibition stands are a must-visit for companies working in R&D, that depend on jumping on the wave of new trends as they are discovered.

...and much more

Networking, Prizes & Awards, Social Events

The EU PVSEC consists of different elements that complement each other to cover the whole spectrum PV has to offer.
