PVthin’s Scientific Virtual Reception – Spotlight on sustainable solar photovoltaics
Topic: How enhanced PV sustainability strengthens the EU’s Industrial Strategy
PVthin members, stakeholders and friends of solar PV are invited on 9 September, from 12:00 PM CEST, to hear expert views on how sustainable solar photovoltaics can play an effective role in Europe’s transition to climate neutrality and reinforce the new industrial strategy.
The panel discussion will focus on three dimensions: climate, environmental, social impacts of the energy transition and the solutions between today and 2030, with an outlook to 2050, in EU but also globally.
PVthin, the International Thin-Film Solar Industry Association, will also be marking its 10-year anniversary therefore celebrations are due! The event will be held during the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC), now in its 38th year, to continue to fortify the voice of thin-film globally.
We will have the pleasure to hear from:
- Stephanie Weckend, Programme Officer, Knowledge at the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)
- Davide Polverini, Policy Officer, European Commission’s Directorate General DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs
- Seb Dance, Former MEP and Vice Chair of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee, European Parliament
- Professor Dr. Ayodhya N. Tiwari, Head of the Laboratory for Thin Films and Photovoltaics at Empa – Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, member of PVthin’s Scientific Council, also co-founder of Flisom
