IPVEA announces that it will hold the PV Production Forum at the upcoming 26th EU PVSEC - Exhibition, scheduled to take place September 5-8, 2011 at the International Fair Hamburg, Germany. The forum is scheduled to take place Tuesday, September 6, 2011 from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m.
The PV Production Forum will feature presentations arranged around several focal topics including silicon and thin-film production, which will be led by IPVEA members and other industry experts. The forum will provide an essential opportunity for networking across all segments of the PV value chain along with informing its participants about the changing dynamics, technologies and developments in the PV manufacturing supply chain.
This forum addresses best practices and case studies that can assist PV production management, purchasing staff and product managers in learning how to increase throughput, efficiency and save money in their production fabs. The PV Production Forum 2011 is jointly organized by EU PVSEC and IPVEA - International PV Equipment Association during the 26th EU PVSEC.
Founded in May 2008, the International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) is an independent, non-profit organization of manufacturers and suppliers of photovoltaic (PV) fabrication equipment and related raw materials used in PV ingot, wafer, cell (crystalline and thin-film), and panel manufacturing. The overall mission of the association is to provide members with a forum for information, discussion and exchange of ideas, as well as ways to develop business opportunities and strategic partnerships. The association is the unified voice of the manufacturing segment of the PV industry. As such, the association evaluates and recommends exhibitions, conferences, sales channels and methods of communications that can be effective for its member companies.
