The International Conference on Photovoltaic Science and Engineering (PVSEC) in 2021 and the International Meeting on Lithium Batteries (IMLB) the following year are expected to attract 2,600 delegates between them, injecting an estimated A$8.1 million in direct expenditure into the NSW economy.

Strategic bidding services organisation BESydney secured PVSEC 2021 and IMLB 2022 for Sydney in partnership with the University of NSW (UNSW) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) respectively.

Lyn Lewis-Smith, chief executive BESydney said the wins provide NSW the opportunity to strengthen local research expertise, showcase Australian leadership and support the future advancement of a sector.

“We have a global reputation as great collaborators – Australia has a rich heritage of innovations. These events rapidly advance that process and ensure a broader range of our local industry has the opportunity to develop new capabilities and catalyse new or expanded work with its international counterparts.”

PVSEC 2021 is expected to attract 800 R&D professionals and experts from industry, academia and public institutions over five days with the aim of creating new energy systems for society. Participants will present and discuss problems concerning solar power generation.

The following year, IMLB will be the premier international conference on the state of lithium battery science and technology, as well as current and future applications in transportation (including electric and hybrid vehicles), commercial, aerospace, biomedical, and other promising sectors.

The two meetings are scheduled for the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney).
