HOPV is now established as a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of the advances in hybrid and organic photovoltaics. Building upon the success of the previous HOPV conferences, the HOPV 2017 conference will provide an excellent opportunity for students, scientists and engineers around the world to familiarize themselves with the latest developments on solar energy harvesting and to get inspirations as well as exchanging ideas with the leading scientists from these areas.
The scope of the conference is multidisciplinary, focusing on novel materials with application in energy conversion and optoelectronics, ranging a wide spectrum of devices from photovoltaics, photoelectrochemical and photocatalytic production of solar fuels, sensing, and (stimulated) light emission.
Solar energy conversion by low-cost and efficient photovoltaic devices is a steadily increasing its contribution in the global demand of renewable energy. Hybrid and organic solar cells are highly promising power sources due to their significant progress in efficiency and processing technology. A paradigmatic example are Perovskite-based hybrid solar cells that have demonstrated very high performance, reaching the efficiency shown by silicon-based solar cells. [+]
You are invited to participate in the 10th international Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics, from 28 to 31 May 2018. For this 10th anniversary of the HOPV conference we will return to Benidorm at the coast of Allicante, Spain where the conference was first held.
In these past ten years hybrid and organic solar cells have advanced enormously in terms of efficiency, lifetime, and technology and have a true promise to become an important source of renewable energy. In addition, they present fascinating opportunities and challenges for scientific research and technological development. [+]
