PVSEC-17 Photovoltaic Conference Resources


"Be Ambitious! Seek the inspiration to bring happiness to humanity through your work in PV."

Since those closing words from the 17th International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC-17) General Chairperson Professor Masafumi Yamaguchi (Toyota Technological Institute), the information packed Closing Address and Opening Address presentations have been uploaded to the PVSEC-17 Program page.

1439 Conference participants from around the world converged on the Fukuoka International Congress Center in Fukuoka, Japan, from December 3-7, 2007, for the 17th International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC-17). The PVSEC-17 Conference was dominated by Japan with 769 participants while the top six (6) was rounded out by Korea 182, Taiwan 123, USA 95, Germany 74, and China 22. The simultaneous PVSEC-17 Exhibition featuring 46 Exhibitors attracted 5027 visitors over the course of 3 days.

During the PVSEC-17 Conference, 627 Papers from 36 countries were presented including about 364 Poster Presentations. Germany vaulted to third in Papers from their participant attendance rank of fifth. Chairperson Professor Yamaguchi noted the above trend ratio of Papers to Attendees for PVSEC-17 versus peer international photovoltaic conferences: EU PVSEC, IEEE-PVSC, and WCPEC.

Alas, although I had begun the preparations for attending PVSEC-17, I was unable to get away that first full week in December. I believe I missed getting a sense of the Photovoltaic (PV) market vibe from Japan and the PV research underway in Japan and Asia.

Thanks are in order to Greentech Media, Nanosolar Chooses German Town for Solar Plant, and Earth2Tech, Nanosolar Starts Thin-Film Solar Panel Production, for linking to my In Search of Nanosolar GmbH post.
