Silicon PV experts from all around the world attended the hybrid conference and attended either in Konstanz, Germany, or online for one full week: SiliconPV focused on all aspects of cristalline PV, the nPV workshop was dedicated to n-type wafer, solar cells and module technologies, and the bifiPV workshop presented invited talks on bificial applications. Next to many outstanding presentations, the program included a virtual technical tour, the legendary conference dinner and a 1TW party to celebrate 1TWp installed solar power.
11th International Conference on Silicon Photovoltaics
April 19-23, 2021, online event
Hosted by: ISFH
The 2021 conference proceedings may also be purchased as a printed book (ISBN: 978-0-7354-4362-4).
The SiliconPV 2021 best 20 papers are published in Elsevier’s peer reviewed journal SOLMAT in the special issue "SiliconPV 2021"
Due to the pandemic, SiliconPV 2021 could only be held online. Nevertheless we had a wonderful conference with many inspiring oral and poster presentations and a virtual technical tour. Besides the (as always) outstanding scientific program, attendees loved the many possibilites to meet and talk in a speed dating event, morning meetings, and a pub quiz. Students and young scientists enjoyed the board game evening.
