Revealing the cutting edge of solar power.

THE European Space Agency's Dr Stephen Taylor will be among the speakers at today's Solar Flair conference in Durham.

The Solar Flair 11 conference is organised by the County Durham Development Company, and will allow those running businesses and doing research in the photovoltaic field to discuss industry issues.

Dr Taylor is set to give a talk on the use of solar power in the space industry, while delegates will also learn about progress in increasing efficiency and improvements in technology. The discussions at Durham's Radisson Blu hotel may also touch on the recent government announcement that the feed-in tariff will face cuts from the middle of next month.

Other speakers at Solar Flair include Solar Power Portal editor Emma Hughes, Energy and Environmental Management magazine's David Thorpe, Dr Chiara Candelise of the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Energy Systems and Professor James Durrant, the professor of photochemistry at Imperial College London, Dr David Lane, reader in analytical physics and advanced materials at Cranfield University and Dr Douglas Halliday, deputy director of the Centre for Materials Physics at Durham University.
