PORTLAND, Maine, October 2008 — IntertechPira is pleased to announce that the 3rd annual Organic Photovoltaics 2009 conferences scheduled for April 27 – 29, 2009th at the Doubletree Hotel Philadelphia in Philadelphia, PA, US. Co-Chaired by Russell Gaudiana, of Konarka Technologies Inc. and Dr. Dana Olson of the NREL,this year’s program will provide a unique venue for industry experts, researchers, customers and investors to address the opportunities and most critical challenges for the commercialization of OPV technologies.Drawing in part on key examples from the OLED and printed-electronics industries, this forum will provide a multifaceted examination of what is required to transform today’s laboratory-based technologies into large-scale commercial products. Discussion of technological requirements and manufacturing considerations will be complemented by an analysis of market forces to identify not only when OPVs will be widely commercialized, but what role they will play in the context of a growing PV industry.
The conference will feature approximately 18 expert presentations assessing OPV market trends, technical development and application related advances through presentations, question-and-answer sessions and panel discussions. Keynote presentations will be allocated 35 minutes for the speaker followed by 10-15 minutes for questions and discussion.
