EU PVSEC 2013 in Paris:
Provides Access to Emerging Markets and to the French-speaking World
The 28th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (28th EU PVSEC) will take place from 30 September to 04 October 2013 at Parc des Expositions Paris Nord Villepinte in Paris, France. The five-day Conference is complemented by the three-day Exhibition, held from 01 to 03 October 2013. The event will be held in a period when France is increasing its PV activities. France launches a new set of incentive measures and has doubled its 2013 PV installation targets. The programme is expected to stimulate investments amounting to more than 2 billion Euros.
Paris, capital of France, is the focal hub of the French-speaking world, an economic force with an estimated population of 300 million in 29 countries. This role is reflected in France's tight connections to emerging energy markets, like the Middle East, North Africa, Central, West and Southern Africa.
The potential of these upcoming renewable energy markets is underlined by initiatives such as the MENA-OECD Task Force on Energy and Infrastructure, focusing on formulating policy recommendations to help spur investment in renewable energy in the MENA region.
Paris represents one of the world's leading business centres. The city hosts the headquarters of international organisations such as UNESCO, ESA - European Space Agency, OECD - Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, IEA - International Energy Agency, ICC - International Chamber of Commerce, REN21 - Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century and many more.
Being held 2013 in Paris, the 28th EU PVSEC also sheds light on what is happening in the international organisations and offers the platform for all key players to meet and to discuss cooperation opportunities.
The Call for Papers is now open. Abstracts for presentation at the conference can be submitted until 01 March 2013.
