On August 31st, the 3rd Perovskite Forum in Taiwan will take place.
"What is the charm behind the next-generation solar energy technology known as 'perovskite solar energy,' which is Bill Gates' new dream for solar energy?
Without calcium, titanium, or mining involved, why are all countries in the world ramping up investments and industrialization efforts this year? What significant industrial transformation is taking place?"
Leading Technology Revolution for Net Zero Emissions by 2050
The severe impact of global climate change on the Earth's ecosystem has prompted more than 130 countries to set forth the goal of achieving "net-zero emissions by 2050." Among them, perovskite solar energy is regarded as a crucial direction for energy transition, encompassing various professional fields such as materials, technology, equipment, and applications, which bring unlimited opportunities to the solar energy industry.
So as to promote the development of the perovskite industry in Taiwan, we sincerely invite you to participate in the 3rd Taiwan Perovskite Technology and Application Forum. This forum is jointly organized by the TPRIA and the ITRI, aiming to provide a platform for industry-academia collaboration and exchange.
It will allow you to gain insights into the latest market information and technological advancements, collectively accelerating the thriving development of Taiwan's perovskite industry.
The forum is divided into two main themes: Industry Applications and Technology Forum. We have invited more than twenty experts from domestic and international industrial, academic, and research sectors to discuss the latest trends and developments in third-generation solar energy from various perspectives, equipment, materials, production line design, and application innovation included.
The forum will provide you with a valuable opportunity for learning and networking, enhancing your professional knowledge in the field of perovskite solar energy.
We sincerely invite you to participate in this forum and together create a brighter future for energy.
