Munich, 08 April 2014 - Teun Bokhoven is President of the Dutch Renewable Energy Federation and has over 25 years of experience in the international solar energy sector. He established a number of solar energy companies in Europe and he is involved as solar market expert in several global initiatives like the UNDP. He was one of the founders of the Dutch solar trade association Holland Solar and the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF). In the Netherlands he is President of the Dutch Renewable Energy Federation (Duurzame Energie Koepel), an umbrella organisation for all renewable energy sector associations (solar, wind, bio-energy, etc.). In that capacity he played a key role in the recent establishment of the Dutch National Energy Agreement on "greening the economy".

"The Netherlands is happy and proud to host this major global solar event. It underlines the importance of photovoltaics for building a sustainable energy future; not only in the Sunbelt, but everywhere, including this country which is so well-known for its windmills. This conference is a strong support for our ambition to be in the top league of PV science, technology and deployment. Photovoltaics combines the major opportunities for a clean energy system and a greener economy" Teun Bokhoven stated when accepting to be the Conference General Chairman.
