#HOPV24 Presentation

The 16th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics, took place 13-15th May 2024 in the centre of sunny Valencia, in an antique palace centrally located.

The 16th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics (HOPV24) explored the cutting-edge advancements in hybrid and organic solar cells, including perovskite, organic, and other novel solar cells, as well as their integration into complementary photoelectrochemical systems. Building on the success of previous conferences, HOPV 2024 gathered scientists and engineers from around the world to discuss the latest developments in these areas. The event  featured renowned invited speakers who covered a broad range of topics in morning plenary sessions, followed by afternoon parallel sessions. The conference devoted special attention to cross-disciplinary discussions and knowledge exchange, highlighting the importance of advanced materials and emerging technologies in the solar energy field. It also featured special sessions on energy policy and career development.


Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Material design and modelling (OPV, HPV)
  • Device physics and engineering (OPV, HPV)
  • Advanced characterization and automation
  • Operational and material stability (OPV, HPV)
  • Commercialization (OPV, HPV)
  • Breaking efficiency limits
  • Emerging materials (2Ds, NCs, reticular chemistry, other)
  • Emerging concepts (optoionics, photoferroics)

Key topics of the conference included material design in organic and hybrid photovoltaics, artificial intelligence and machine learning for energy technologies, advanced characterization techniques for new-generation photovoltaics, breaking efficiency limits, operational stability measurement and reporting, scale-up and commercialization of new-generation photovoltaics, emerging framework materials for energy conversion, multifunctional materials in energy conversion and beyond, emerging concepts in solar energy conversion (from optoionics to photoferroics), photoelectrochemical energy conversion, and energy policy and diplomacy. These topics were addressed by experts in their respective fields, promoting comprehensive discussions and the exchange of ideas to further advance the field of solar energy and its applications. The combination of diverse topics and interdisciplinary approaches ensured a fruitful and engaging conference experience for all participants.
