It is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to the Global Photovoltaic Conference 2019 (GPVC2019) to be held in March 13-15, 2019 at Gwangju, Kimdaejung Convention Center(KCC) in Korea. Gwangju is the Hub of Energy Valley, and also city of Culture and the Arts. KCC is a landmark of Gwangju which is not only one of the most famous convention center in South Korea but also available for the various conferences and exhibitions by their versatile functional space and a variety of convenient facilities.
We are all aware that photovoltaics is now considered the only option as the clean technology that could eventually replace the fossil fuel and the nuclear power in a foreseeable future. In recent few years, solar electricity has become cost competitive with conventional electricity in many locations worldwide, enabling remarkable growth of the industry. Following the successful hosting of GPVC for the past few years, I assure that the GPVC 2019 will also be held successfully and help PV community to achieve our goal by active interactions between conference participants. GPVC 2019 with ~600 papers from around the world will be a place for sharing new technological development, exchanging innovative ideas, promoting friendship, and experiencing new culture.
