25th EU PVSEC and WCPEC-5 Photovoltaic Poster Award Winners

[Valencia, Spain]

A record 1160 posters were displayed during the conference.

From 25th EU PVSEC and WCPEC-5 Poster Awards

During the Closing Session of the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (25th EU PVSEC) / 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC-5), Dr. Arnulf Jäger-Waldau presided over the Award Ceremony for the best Visual Presentations.

Almost all of the poster winners were present at Friday’s Closing Session. It does not appear the absent winners need fear award forfeiture as was the case the last time in Valencia.

Congratulations to all the poster award winners and all the poster participants.

I aspired for a poster when I submitted my 25th EU PVSEC abstract, but I was surprised to be selected for an Oral Presentation instead. I believe I benefited from choosing Topic 6 – PV TAKING OFF: LARGE-SCALE DEPLOYMENT which had the lowest number of abstract submissions and the international WCPEC-5 aspect of the 25th EU PVSEC.
