International Workshop on CIGS Thin-film Solar Modules in Paris on May 22/24, 2019

Exceptional focus on most recent and exciting industrial and scientific developments worldwide

The International workshop on CIGS thin-film photovoltaic solar cell technology (IW-CIGSTech 10) will celebrate its 10th anniversary on May 23/24, 2019 in Paris. It will bring, in a condensed two-day format, an exceptional focus on most recent and exciting industrial and scientific developments worldwide. IW-CIGSTech 10 will be hosted at the Institut Photovoltaïque d'Île de France (IPVF) and Ecole Polytechnique. The two German research institutes Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research, ZSW) and Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) are co-organizers of the workshop. (Information and Registration:

For 10 years, the workshop has been a unique forum which paved the way of the present take-off of CIGS PV technologies and anticipates future innovative developments (light-weight flexible, high efficiencies, tandem cells). Key worldwide industrial players (Solar Frontier, Solibro Hi-Tech, Avancis, MiaSolé Hi-Tech, NICE Solar Energy, Global Solar, Von Ardenne…) and research institutes (ZSW, EMPA, HZB, IPVF, IMEC, Solliance, Jülich, NREL, AIST, Universities of Delaware, Uppsala, Luxembourg, Nantes…) confirmed their contributions to the program.

IW-CIGSTech 10 will consist of invited talks, discussions and poster presentations. Young scientists and student are welcome. Abstracts for visual presentations should be sent to There will be a networking event in downtown Paris on the evening of May 23rd.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
