Thank you for attending CPV-13

The 13th International Conference on Concentrator Photovoltaics (CPV-13) successfully took place from May 01-03 in Ottawa, Canada and focused on high- and low-concentration PV components, modules, and tracker-based PV systems.

We were happy to welcome academics, technologists, students, and financiers from various countries around the world.
