The “Solar Meets Glass – 3rd Industry Summit for Markets, Costs and Technology” conference, held on 22nd – 23rd October as part of Glasstec/Solarpeq, drew to a successful close with more than 130 participants.

Glass International attended the two-day event, which provided a market and technology overview for photovoltaics (PV) and also addressed such issues as manufacturing technology and efficiency, as well as materials and costs associated with PV glass.

From 2013, the Eastern Bavarian Technology Transfer Institute (OTTI e.V.) will contribute to “Solar Meets Glass” both in terms of content and organisation. By merging the two well-established events “Solar Meets Glass” and “Glas und Solar” (organised by OTTI) a comprehensive and targeted special-interest conference will be created, aimed at overlapping the glass and solar sectors.

A full review of the conference and Glasstec/Solarpeq will be available in the November issue of Glass International.
