South African Pv industry to meet at AfricaPVSEC 2014

South Africa's PV community -- and those hoping to partner in or join it -- will be gathering in Durban 27-29 March 2014 for the Africa Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (AfricaPVSEC).

To date, about 80 speakers have committed to speak on the subject of photovoltaics in Africa, and 11 organizations from 38 countries are already scheduled to be represented.

 Following a comprehensive review of submitted abstracts to present at the inaugural AfricaPVSEC, the event organisers’ Scientific Committee has finalised the programme of the first African Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference.

Under the guidance of Prof. Vivian Alberts, University of Johannesburg, and coordinated by the Technical Programme Chairman Dr. Arnulf Jäger-Waldau, European Commission, DG Joint Research Centre, the Conference Programme was defined and structured.

“The AfricaPVSEC conference presents a perfect platform to promote photovoltaic technology as a viable alternative source of energy in Africa," said Vivian Alberts, a professor at the University of Johannesburg.

"This conference and exhibition aims to enhance trade and business opportunities, linking African-based professionals, academics and their global counterparts for an open exchange of ideas and information among businesses, organizations and government agencies that will maximise PV adoption and proliferation throughout the continent,” Alberts said.

At this first AfricaPVSEC – planned to be an annual important convention on solar industry calendars of events – international speakers representing e.g. Algeria, Brazil, Congo, Germany, Kenya, Italy, Morocco, Nigeria, Portugal, Rwanda, South Africa, Syria, Tunesia, and the United States will discuss their latest scientific results and proposals for technical advancement, to enable the environment for and the implementation of PV applications.

The conference programme covers three main topics, focusing on the wide spectrum of photovoltaic technology ranging from materials research to business models and policy assessments. Dr. Giovanni De Santi, European Commission, DG JRC, Director of the Institute for Energy and Transport, will lead a high-ranking delegation of the European Commission.

“Solar-generated photovoltaic electricity is a key energy source to meet the rapidly growing energy demand in Africa, which cannot be met by traditional sources alone," said Dr. Arnulf Jäger-Waldau, the Technical Programme Chairman of the AfricaPVSEC. "The launch of AfricaPVSEC underscores the fact that there is not only a rapidly growing African scientific community in the area of Solar Photovoltaic Power Generation, but that the installation of solar photovoltaic electricity-generation systems is accelerating in many African countries.”
