The Australian PV Institute was pleased to host the recent 2022 Asia-Pacific Solar Research Conference in Newcastle, New South Wales. For ACAP, it was a terrific opportunity to connect with our fellow research peers and industry partners, especially after the recent years of the pandemic; to be able to network and collaborate in person was a great reminder of the vibrancy of the Australian solar research community.
ACAP was thrilled recognise several researchers, each awarded prizes throughout the conference in recognition of their work in 2022:
ANU's Jiali Wang received the ACAP Award for best oral presentation for her talk, Inkjet printing for boron-doped polycrystalline silicon passivating contacts.

CSIRO's Luke Sutherland received the ACAP Award for best poster APSRC 2022, R2R Perovskite Solar Cells With Solvent-free Printed Electrodes.

UNSW's Ning Song won the Energy Advances Award for Outstanding Poster in PV Device Research for her work, Multifunctional multilayer antireflection coatings for solar module glass.
