Chairman's Message

Welcome to SiliconPV and nPV Workshop 2019 at Leuven, Belgium

Thinking back about the 2nd edition of SiliconPV in Leuven in April 2012, SiliconPV has since been able to take a unique position in the plethora of yearly PV-conferences. It has established itself as the Conference where in-depth new scientific insights and reviews in crystalline Si-based PV are combined with presentations on high-performance devices based on technological excellence.

The 2019 edition is hosted by imec and will be held in Leuven - a unique location for the SiliconPV Conference aiming at an audience of young researchers mixed with highly experienced leaders from R&D and industry. The PV-module session of SiliconPV on Tuesday afternoon will be done in Genk, where imec in the frame of the EnergyVille-collaboration has set up a new lab of nearly 2000 m2 with state-of-the art infrastructure for research amongst others on PV-modules, PV-system and storage. During this afternoon session, time will be foreseen to allow the SiliconPV attendants to visit these brand-new facilities.
