As for the previous edition, the conference Solar Meets Glass Second Industry Summit for Quality, Logistics and Material received positive feedback among over 150 delegates from the glass and solar industries on 13 April 2011. The event, which was organized by Messe Dsseldorf GmbH and Solarpraxis AG, formed part of the Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week, the world“s biggest of its kind, which was held at the Berlin Adlershof Technology Park, from 11 to 15 April. Other modules during this week were the Thin-Film Industry Forum, organized by Solarpraxis AG, the Second International Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology, set up by PVcomB (the Thin-Film and Nanotechnology Competence Centre for Photovoltaics in Berlin), and the VDMA Annual Conference for Photovoltaics Production Equipment. As well as providing an overview of the market and technology, Solar Meets Glass focused on the subjects of quality, logistics and materials each with the purpose of discussing interfaces between the glass and solar industries. This year we consciously decided to put the emphasis on thin-film PV, as glass is a material of absolutely vital importance for a variety of reasons. Thematically, this added up to an excellent event where delegates at the Solar Meets Glass conference also benefited from the added value of other events at the Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week, said Hans Werner Reinhard, deputy managing director at Messe Dsseldorf. We are pleased that by bundling various events during the Thin-Film Week this year we could create additional synergies, so that even more delegates came to Adlershof than last year. PVcomB, Messe Dsseldorf and VDMA complemented each other very well in the way in they worked together and addressed various target groups, so that the Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week is now even more widely known in the industry, said Karl-Heinz Remmers, CEO of Solarpraxis AG. Delegates explicitly praised the Solar Meets Glass conference for providing a platform for an exchange between the solar and glass industries where burning issues and solution proposals could be discussed. Glass is one of the key elements for any future increase in efficiency and for cost reductions in photovoltaics. Messe Dsseldorf and Solarpraxis AG are planning to work together again in 2012, when the next Solar Meets Glass conference will be held as part of the Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week at the Adlershof Technology Park in Berlin.
