Chairman's Message

Welcome to SiliconPV and nPV workshop 2018 at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

The field of crystalline silicon technology has witnessed a wealth of new ideas being worked out at an impressive pace in recent years: reducing silicon usage significantly, manipulating material defects, creating high performance passivating contacts, inventing low-cost patterning steps, adding junctions on top of silicon, going for the ultimate module design and for the ultimate efficiency… Depending on the scenarios, the annual PV market could grow up to 500 GW in the next 12 to 20 years. In other words, we are not at the end, but just at the beginning of the solar era. Any money invested in academics, research centers or industries, is an important and justifiable investment in the future of the planet.
