8th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion

The WCPEC combines the three largest and most prominent international PV conferences: the European PV Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC), the Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (IEEE PVSC) and the International PV Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC). After being in place for more than a quarter of a century, the WCPEC, being held every four years, is firmly established among the global PV community as THE event for the greatest minds and experts in various PV sectors to meet and discuss, to exchange and network!

The EUPVSEC is proud to have the World Conference back in Europe and host the 8th edition of this event, bringing together the global PV community in the beautiful city of Milan. We want to invite you to come and join us at this year’s truly global event.
