The 8th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion took place from 26 – 30 September 2022 in the Milano Convention Center in Milan, Italy.


A monumental event after 2 years of online meetings welcoming more than 1500 participants from 60 countries and covering over 1100 presentations, consisting of Scientific Sessions, engaging Panel Discussions, in-depth Parallel Events and market related Industry Presentations.

The Scientific Conference Programme is coordinated by the European Commission Joint Research Centre and covers the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications focusing on bringing the latest scientific and technological research trends to the market.

The Programme is structured in plenary, oral and visual sessions and it  covers the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications with a special emphasis on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends.

It offers a variety of broader insights into the current developments in the sector, acknowledging that PV integration needs to be approached from all dimensions – scientific, technical, economic, political, business, and also social- and educational aspects.

The Parallel Events offer a deep insight into specific topics along the most recent PV technology, PV application and market trends and address global decision makers from industry, research, financing and politics.
