The WCPEC comes back to Europe

The World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC-8) is the World’s biggest platform for PV research and development, offering a unique possibility of international exchange by combining the three largest and most prominent international PV conferences: the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (39th EU PVSEC), the Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (IEEE PVSC-50) and the International PV Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC-32).

In 2022, the EU PVSEC is proud to have the World Conference back in Europe after 12 long years and host the 8th edition of this event, bringing together the global PV community in the beautiful city of Milan.
