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).


Introducing Dr. Jean-Louis Lazzari, new Scientific Managing Editor

We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Jean-Louis Lazzari, Centre Interdisciplinaire de Nanoscience de Marseille (CINaM) to the role of Scientific Managing Editor of EPJ Photovoltaics. He will support the Editors-in-Chief, Pr. Pere Roca i Cabarrocas, École Polytechnique, and Dr. Daniel Lincot, CNRS, Institut Photovoltaïque d'Ile de France, in the day-to-day running of the journal.

Both Editors-in-Chief are well-known experts in the field of photovoltaic solar energy conversion and lead an experienced, international editorial board specialising in key areas such as Bulk Silicon, Semiconductor Thin Films and Organic Materials and Devices. Dr. Lazzari will ensure the smooth operation of the journal and help to maintain the consistent high standards which recently led to the award of the DOAJ Seal for “best practice in open access publishing”.

Dr. Lazzari is widely-published and has previously guest edited a number of EPJ PV topical issues. He works as a senior researcher in CINaM and his research focus is on surfaces, interfaces of heterostructures and nanostructures of semiconductors, electronic, optical and magnetic properties of thin-film compounds for optoelectronic and microelectronic devices. He is a quantum- and device- physicist. He is very active in international events linked to Nanoscience, Nanotechnologies and Photovoltaics (Nanotexnology, former Photovoltaic Technical Conference, Nanomeeting). He is a scientific expert for the French National Research Agency (ANR), the Association Nationale Recherche Technologie (ANRT), and the European Commission, Research Executive Agency.

“We welcome Dr. Jean-Louis Lazzari to the EPJ PV editorial team and look forward to his presence alongside Pr. Pere Roca i Cabarrocas and Dr. Daniel Lincot. We very much enjoy working with such a dynamic and talented group of editors.” Ariana Fuga, Senior Editor, EDP Sciences

EPJ Photovoltaics is a high-quality, open access journal publishing original, peer-reviewed papers in the field of photovoltaic solar energy conversion. It is indexed in Web of Science (Emerging Sources Citation Index), Scopus and many more. It is one of the European Physical Journal (EPJ) series of peer-reviewed journals covering the whole spectrum of physics and related interdisciplinary subjects.

DOAJ Seal awarded to EPJ Photovoltaics demonstrating “best practice in open access publishing”

We are pleased to announce that EPJ Photovoltaics, among 22 other EDP Sciences’ journals, has recently been awarded the DOAJ Seal which “is awarded to journals that demonstrate best practice in open access publishing”. Only around 10% of journals indexed in the DOAJ are awarded the DOAJ Seal, so it is a gratifying mark of recognition of the excellent work EPJ Photovoltaics is doing.


EU PVSEC 2021 – An enhanced virtual experience

The EU PVSEC is the world's leading forum for PV Research and Development and the biggest Conference on PV Solar Energy worldwide. It covers a wide range of PV topics such as device materials, components and systems, wafering, BIPV, agrivoltaics, floating PV and much more! That is why PV experts from all around the globe are keen on gathering together each year to be part of this specialist’s event, to present and discuss the latest developments in Photovoltaics, to network and to conduct business.
