“Solar meets Glass” – big success
In the fields surrounding the fairs “glasstec“ and “solarpeq“, for the first time, approximately 200 international representatives of the solar and glass industries met at the “SOLAR MEETS GLASS- the 1st Industry Summit for Solar Production, Logistics and Technology“ on the 27th and 28th September to discuss topics related to both industries.
Solarpraxis AG and Messe Düsseldorf, the organizers of the conference, stand untied in the belief that the successful prelude will be the beginning of a conference series that will progress on to address further topics that will deepen the communication between both industries.
“Our first meeting ‘Solar meets Glass’ in cooperation with Messe Düsseldorf saw approximately 200 international participants, with high caliber speakers and lively discussions with large success. We have, hereby, activated a dialogue between the solar and glass industries, which is of great importance for the development of solar energy. What is important now is that this dialogue is further enhanced in order to drive the necessary developments in achieving cost and quality optimization with regards to the field of logistics where parallels meet. We are excited about further cooperation with Messe Düsseldorf,” stated Karl-Heinz Remmers, CEO of Solarpraxis AG.
“Our goal was to provide the glass and solar branches the possibility to exchange respective requirements in a highly professional field and manner within the scopes of the events, glasstec and solarpeq. The positive feedback from the participants showed that the effort was worth the while,” added Hans Werner Reinhard, deputy managing director of Messe Düsseldorf.
Dr. Harald Binder, advisor and chairman of the conference, was also very satisfied with the positive feedback that was given by the participants. “The good resonance of the meeting clearly shows that there must be purposeful partnerships between the PV and glass industries,” he elaborated. After a market and technology overview to photovoltaic and glass, the themes quality, cost-savings and logistics were the centres of discussion.
