Significant downturn at EUPVSEC

The crisis in the photovoltaic industry is evident in the numbers of exhibitors and visitors at the 28th EUPVSEC in Paris. Last year, approximately 660 companies presented their research results and new products. This year, just over 250 exhibitors found their way to the exhibition grounds in Paris. It remains to be seen how the number of visitors has developed. The number of scientific lectures and presentations, however, only decreased slightly. The topics of new business models and new markets play a prominent role in the conference. New trends, however, are not yet recognisable. The interest in Latin America has increased significantly. India and Israel are now also on the agenda of markets to be developed, but China is still considered difficult to access.
