28th EU PVSEC Poster Award Winners

[Paris, France]

1068 posters were displayed during the conference, one more than last year in Frankfurt.


After presenting the “Selected Highlights of the Conference” in the 28th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC 2013) Closing Session, Technical Programme Chairman Dr. Arnulf Jäger-Waldau also presided over the Award Ceremony for the best Visual Presentations. A total of eight (8) Visual Presentations or posters were awarded in five (5) of the six (6) topic areas as shown in the group photo. Dr. Jäger-Waldau said: “We had a selection in Topic 5, but unfortunately the awardee has already left the conference.

The Poster Award winners were announced in the following topic area order.

The EU PVSEC Student Awards were preannounced as shown here.

With the enhanced visual format and near instantaneous posting to the EU PVSEC website, I don’t believe a separate 28th EU PVSEC Conference Highlights post is warranted this year. So ends a Blog tradition begun seven years ago at the 21st EU PVSEC held in Dresden, Germany.
