The PV Performance Modeling Collaborative (PVPMC) was founded by Sandia National Laboratories in 2010 to improve the technical quality of PV performance modeling and analyses. The PVPMC has sponsored ten workshops and is excited to announce that the 11th PVPMC Workshop will be in Weihai, Shandong, China and will be co-sponsored by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT)，Fraunhofer ISE, and Sandia National Laboratories.
This workshop will focus on high-quality academic keynote reports from industry leaders and technical updates from researchers. The leading experts from domestic and abroad are invited to share results and data about PV performance including solar resource assessments, PV cell, module, and plant performance modeling, new concepts for improving PV performance, challenges and success stories of integration of PV into the grid and society.
The 9th PVPMC in China last year was a great success, and we believe that the gathering of well-known PV experts from China and abroad can help bring more innovative thinking to the PV industry globally.
Following the workshop in Weihai, we are offering a two-day guided technical tour of several PV factories and research centers in and around Shanghai. Visitors who purchase this option will fly from Weihai to Shanghai after the workshop and spend the next two days learning about PV cell and module manufacturing with technical tutorials and factory visits. The tour will include lodging, local transportation for the tour, and meals. More details will be forthcoming.
