EU Strategy on Solar Energy

ESMC

 

In spring 2022, ESMC welcomed the forthcoming EU strategy for solar energy as the framework for building long-term competitiveness and critical mass of PV manufacturing capacities in Europe.

Solar Strategy

 

Promoting the development of manufacturing capacities for sustainable PV products in Europe requires implementation of support policies, without slowing down market development. 

Following the EU industrial strategy, ESMC have requested a Solar Strategy in which the significance of PV manufacturing will be addressed. During 2021 and 2022, ESMC have provided input to the European Commission in the forming of the EU Strategy on Solar Energy.

ESMC Welcomes the Inclusion of PV Manufacturing in the EU Solar Strategy

ESMC congratulates the European Commission on adopting the EU Solar Energy Strategy earlier than expected. We note that most of the ESMC proposals have been included into the Strategy; However, more concrete targeted actions are necessary to be launched without delay in order to re-establish solar PV manufacturing capacities in Europe in competitive scale and to reduce the increasing solar PV trade deficit.
