Incremental updates to photovoltaic conferences and events in 2008
This update supplements the original post, Photovoltaic Conference and Exhibition Preview 2008.
The detailed two day program for the PV Industry Forum is now available. In addition, Solar Promotion has added the 1st Solar Thermal Industry Forum (http://www.solarthermalindustry.de) on June 11, 2008, although the afternoon program is still being flushed out.
Intersolar North America Draws International Participation cites the success of the exhibition in attracting international exhibitors. In order to free up additional exhibition space, the comprehensive conference program has been moved to the InterContinental Hotel adjacent to the Moscone West Convention Center. Besides the “very special symposium session”, “Solar Gigawatts for Europe – Status Perspectives European Solar Markets and Industries”, the conference program includes the following topic areas:
Solar Thermal Technology
Building Integrated Technologies
External partners will also cover additional topic areas. The conference program is being finalized by Solar Promotion and should be rolled out on the Intersolar North America 2008 website in early May.
