PVthin’s Annual Reception & Panel Discussion addressing the role of BIPV in EU’s Building Renovation Wave

PVthin is organising its Annual Reception on 8 September 2020 but this year it’s going online for the very first time.

The reception will be held during the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC), now in its 37th year, to continue to fortify the voice of thin-film globally. 

We are expecting industry peers, researchers and stakeholders to join us from 17:00 CEST and discuss a subject that has been on the lips of many policy makers and industry representatives lately:
