After its huge success last year, EXPO Solar (www.exposolar.org) came back this year to get even more enthusiastic welcome and responses from both exhibitors and visitors alike.


Signs of Recovery


After a very difficult year in 2009, the PV market is witnessing some signs of recovery all over the world. As the global PV market begins its path to recovery, solar professionals, entrepreneurs and business leaders headed to EXPO Solar 2010 to gauge the market sentiment in the new energy economy. At a time when leading PV markets such as Germany, the U.S., France and Italy have seen some strengthening market conditions and an increase in demand, EXPO Solar 2010 served visitors as a valuable indicator of things to come.
