The 1st Solar Mobility Forum and the 2nd Solar Industry Forum take 
place during next 35th EU PVSEC in Brussels, Belgium 
•  1st Solar Mobility Forum will start on 25 September as a Half-day Morning 
•  2nd Solar Industry Forum will take place on 25 – 26 September 2018  
•  Co-organizers of the events are the European Technology & Innovation 
Platform for Photovoltaics (ETIP PV), the BECQUEREL INSTITUTE and EU 
PVSEC, in cooperation with SOLARUNITED 
The 1st Solar Mobility Forum and the 2nd Solar Industry Forum will take place on 25 – 26 
September 2018 during the 35th EU PVSEC in Brussels, Belgium at the SQUARE – Brussels 
Meeting Centre. “Research Meets Business” is the guiding principle for these two events 
which will gather the most acknowledged experts in the PV sector and influential 
executives of the PV manufacturing sector.  International speakers, panellists, and 
attendees from al  over the world wil  meet and discuss the future of PV and new 
Co-organizers of the events are the European Technology & Innovation Platform for 
Photovoltaics (ETIP PV), the BECQUEREL INSTITUTE and EU PVSEC, in cooperation with 
The 2nd Solar Industry Forum will be the meeting point for all industry stakeholders to 
exchange cutting-edge information and raise their knowledge about the future of the 
manufacturing industry in the Solar PV sector. This second edition is again an event 
embedded within the EU PVSEC, providing an alternative path for attendees with an 
industry background, al owing them to attend EU PVSEC’s scientific sessions in parallel 
with the Solar Industry Forum sessions. The two-day forum is targeting high-level PV 
industry stakeholders with a mix of presentations and roundtable discussions with key 
European and global speakers. Leading questions will be the future of the Solar PV 
industry and what to manufacture as well as economy and financing of the industry. 
The 1st Solar Mobility Forum, taking place on 25 September 2018 with a half-day morning 
session, is dedicated to solar and mobility reaching from Vehicle-integrated PV (VIPV) to 
the contribution of electric vehicles to PV development. During the forum questions like 
“How will e-mobility enable a faster PV development”, “How could the rapid 
development of e-mobility accelerate PV development” and “The involvement of the 
car industry in PV: a logical evolution through storage” wil  be discussed.
