Photovoltaics USA 2011

Start Date:30 Nov 11 End Date:01 Dec 11

Photovoltaics USA 2011 will be shedding light on the latest trends from major innovators in the solar cell sector. The conference will be covering all the developments in thin film, organic and printed photovoltaics, bringing you the latest innovations on established photovoltaics technologies as well as emerging ones.

The growth of the photovoltaics sectors in 2010 has been impeded by the global economic slowdown, which has led to an unexpected reshuffle in the industry. The large drop in silicon pricing is creating a very competitive field in which efficiency, reliability and cost are at the forefront. Find out where efforts are focused in each of the technology platforms covered; discover competitive advantages as well as requirements of different industries, ranging from small electronic devices to large scale solar implementations.

Over 25 world class speakers will be covering solar cells, manufacturing, materials and applications in the following topics:

• CdTe solar cells
• CIS and CIGS developments
• Innovation in silicon technologies
• Organic photovoltaics
• Dye-sensitized solar cells
• Manufacturing and materials developments
• National solar incentives
• Market analysis – forecasts

The ten optional expert-led masterclasses are interactive consultancy sessions. At each masterclass you will have the chance to handle many samples, and take away printed copies of presentations. They will ensure you get the most from the conference and leave with answers to your questions.

• Introduction to printed electronics
• Thin film photovoltaics: principles/technologies/market
• Materials
• Logic, memory and circuitry design for the new electronics
• Printing technologies
• Displays and lighting
• Creating new products with printed electronics
• RFID and its progress towards being printed
• Energy harvesting and storage for small electronic device

Covering the world of organic, inorganic and printed solutions—Companies exhibiting cover materials, manufacture, device production, consulting, academic research and more. Over 60 anticipated exhibitors showcasing their product offerings in an ideal networking environment.

Our event matches potential adopters with solution providers. To that end, the conference program features end users covering their needs or experiences with the technology. These come from a range of industry verticals including healthcare, consumer packaged goods, advertising/media, textiles, military and others. You will also hear from many companies that have created radical new products, from interactive packaging and promotional posters to sensing fabrics and ultra low cost wireless identification tags. In addition, the tradeshow – the world's largest on the topic – features demonstrators of actual printed electronics products.
