Join us at Intersolar Europe, the main exhibition for the European solar industry, happening alongside smarter E Europe – a leading energy sector platform. This event highlights the latest in photovoltaics, solar thermal tech, and solar power plants.

The conference runs from June 18-19, 2024, followed by the exhibition from June 19-21, 2024 in Munich.

We’re excited to be part of the exhibition, connecting with industry leaders and meeting our members. As members of the steering committee of the European Solar PV Industry Alliance (ESIA), we’ll be at the conference’s industry forum, sharing updates and discussing the future of European PV manufacturing.

Members, join us at our booth for special events and networking opportunities. And don’t miss our evening at a cozy biergarten for more connections.

All member events will be internally communicated – keep an eye on your inbox for updates.

The EU PVSEC is the world’s leading forum for PV Research and Development and the biggest Conference on PV Solar Energy worldwide. It covers a wide range of PV topics such as device materials, components and systems, wafering, BIPV, agrivoltaics, floating PV and much more! At the same time, it is a state-of-the-art PV Exhibition, where specialized PV Industry presents technologies, innovations and new concepts in the upstream PV sector. That is why PV experts from all around the globe are keen on gathering each year to be part of this specialist’s event, to present and discuss the latest developments in Photovoltaics, to network and to conduct business.

It is the world-renowned science-to-science and science-to-industry platform with a full and only focus on the global PV Solar sector.

In 2024, the EU PVSEC will be held in the ACV Austria Center Vienna, Vienna, Austria from 23 – 27 September 2024.

The conference programme is coordinated by the European Commission Joint Research Centre.

Join us for the ESMC 223 Annual General Meeting on March 11th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Frankfurt. As the primary decision-making body of our association, this meeting will review last year’s economic activities, discuss next year’s budget, strategize for the future, and elect new board directors.

It’s not just business – it’s also a chance to network and forge valuable connections. Keep an eye on your inbox for your personal ESMC member invitation, along with opportunities for discounted conference tickets to Europe PVCellTech.

This event is strategically timed alongside EU PV CellTech, happening at the same venue on 12–13 March, with ESMC as an official partner. Don’t miss out on this dynamic opportunity!


We at ESMC are pleased to convene what is believed to be the first-ever trilogue on state-sponsored forced labour in the clean energy supply chain, with a particular emphasis on solar photovoltaics.

It takes place Thursday, 15 February 2024 from 12 to 2 pm (Renaissance Brussels Hotel, Rue du Parnasse 19)

As we move towards climate neutrality, we must ensure that Europe’s energy transition is just and reflects European values.

The trilogue will bring together:

  • Anna Cavazzini, Member of European Parliament
  • Adrian Zenz, Victims of Communism Foundation
  • Johan Lindahl, European Solar Manufacturing Council
  • Patricia Carrier, Coalition to End Forced Labour in the Uyghur Region
  • Rushan Abbas, Campaign for Uyghurs

– and it  will be moderated by Anja Lange from First Solar.
