03-07/10/2016 – 11th European Space Power Conference, ESPC, Thessaloniki

We are pleased to invite you to the 11th European Space Power Conference (ESPC 2016), a major event worldwide in this domain, which will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece, on October 3 -7, 2016.


ESPC is the forum of choice for whoever is interested in all aspects of electrical power for space applications or whoever is involved in cutting edge research on these topics for terrestrial applications which, in many case, have little to envy to space ones.

The conference is intended to cover the three main topics of:

  • Power Generation
    • Solar cells, module and generator design and technology
    • Solar Generator mechanical, structural and thermal design
    • Solar cells and generators testing and calibration
    • Environmental interactions
    • Other power generation methods
    • Energy Storage
      • Primary & secondary batteries
      • Fuel Cells & electrolyzers
      • Supercapacitors & Li ion capacitors
      • Other energy storage methods
      • Power Management and distribution
        • Power subsystem architecture
        • Power conditioning, distribution and conversion
        • Materials, processes and components technologies
        • High voltage power processing

In all areas papers may address issues such as:

  • modelling
  • lessons learned (in flight and on ground, successes and failures)
  • reliability
  • cost and schedule optimization
