ATCAE Solar - Atlas Technical Conference on Accelerated Ageing and Evaluation (ATCAE)

Linsengericht (Germany)/March 2011 – Atlas is pleased to announce details for the next Atlas Technical Conference on Accelerated Ageing and Evaluation (ATCAE) which will take place in Berlin, Germany on December 7 – 8, 2011. Again, this conference will be exclusively dedicated to solar energy applications.

In December 2009, Atlas® held a very successful ATCAE Solar Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. The event attracted over 80 participants and was dedicated exclusively to environmental durability aspects of solar energy applications. In December 2010, Atlas and Underwriters Laboratories jointly organized a PV Durability Asia Conference held in Shanghai, China with over 150 attendees participating. In an effort to continue providing the global weathering community with valuable information they need to operate in today’s solar energy market, plans are now underway for this 2011 event being held in Europe.

ATCAE Solar 2011 will take place at the Hotel Concorde in downtown Berlin. During this two-day conference, experts from the solar energy industry, suppliers, test laboratories, institutes, banks and insurance companies will present basic principles, new data and current state-of-the-art technology in environmental durability testing of materials and components for solar energy applications, as well as full PV modules.
