Technology Briefing - Photovoltaics

1. December, 14:00 18:00 , Empa, Dübendorf, Akademie

Photovoltaics - Technologies, System integration and implications




Sustainable, renewable energy sources such as solar energy are intended to provide industry and society with an affordable and long-term energy future. Photovoltaic systems of the next generation are therefore indispensable in order to cover our constantly increasing energy requirements and at the same time to achieve our climate goals.


The technology briefing, jointly organized by the research institutes CSEM, Empa and PSI, highlights the potential of photovoltaics, presents next-generation PV technologies and explores how the technical system integration of the systems can be successful and what effects a greater dependence on PV will have on our CO2 emissions, material consumption and economy will have.




Start: 2:00 p.m

Aperitif: from around 5:15 p.m


The event is bilingual (English, EN and German, DE). You will find the information on the respective presentation language right next to the lecture title.
