The PV Performance Modeling Collaborative (or PVPMC) was first initiated and organized by Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) in the United States, and is held annually in western countries. In 2017, the event was jointly held in China for the first time by the Fraunhofer ISE, the SNL and the Solar Energy Research Institute of Harbin Institute of Technology and continued for four consecutive years until 2020. The PVPMC CHINA is highly praised for its hybrid format of valuing both modeling and simulation technology exchange while conducting in-depth visits and research on Chinese photovoltaic enterprises.

After several virtual sessions due to pandemic, we are thrilled to announce that the PVPMC CHINA will be turning into an offline gathering once again in this year. It will continue the purpose of PVPMC on organizing high-quality academic exchange activities, featuring authoritative experts in the photovoltaic field globally, sharing first-hand measured data from various aspects, establishing an ecological platform around next-generation photovoltaic technology, and conducting new technology testing and evaluation, as well as the exploration and results release of smart energy and energy storage. Exchanges will be conducted on several topics, including solar resource data and prediction, modeling software upgrade, modeling methods and case study, photovoltaic monitoring for attenuation, new photovoltaic technology, photovoltaic grid connection, pollution, and photovoltaic and energy storage. Previous forums have gathered photovoltaic industry experts from China, the United States, Germany, France, Japan, Slovakia, Spain, Singapore, South Korea, Australia, India, Finland, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Switzerland, Cyprus and other countries for exchange, as well as on-site visits and inspections.

The PVPMC CHINA 2023 will be held in Huzhou, China, from November 11-12. Previous to this, the IEC WG 9 International Photovoltaic Support Structure Standards Conference will also be held from November 9-10. Scientific research visits will also be included during the itinerary to exchange ideas on innovative technologies for photovoltaic intelligent applications.
