Polymers in Photovoltaics 2011

Start Date:12 Apr 11 End Date:14 Apr 11

Polymers in Photovoltaics—the international technology and market conference on polymer materials in photovoltaic manufacturing

Polymers in Photovoltaics 2011 will take place from 12-14 April 2011 at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany. There is a welcome reception and registration on the first day followed by a 2-day technical and market programme of expert speakers.

Problems with oil supply and costs are driving international developments in renewable energy including solar photovoltaic modules worldwide. However, the industry needs to make economies in manufacturing to be more cost-effective and sustainable without subsidies. New manufacturing technology is under development, and also innovations in polymer materials for module components. Polymers offer chemical resistance, flexibility, availability and easy processability. The flexibility is of particular interest in small portable cells and building integrated photovoltaics. Polymers are found in components such as front sheet materials, encapsulants, thin film substrates, photoactive layers, support casings, back sheet materials, high performance seals, adhesives and as glass replacement in front covers and concentrating lenses.

Durability and weatherability are key to effective performance, and standards are being reviewed for polymeric components.

Polymers in Photovoltaics 2011 aims to examine a wide range of topics on module manufacturing including new materials, manufacturing equipment, technology and certification. It provides a unique networking and sourcing opportunity for module manufacturers, solar power companies and suppliers to the industry.
