European Solar Initiative Meet & Greet – Come and meet the EU solar PV value chain, and the partners of the European Solar Initiative!

When? 6th October, 16:00 to 17:00
Where? At Intersolar Trade Fair. Hall 5. Booth A5.132 (VDMA) 

The European Solar Initiative is an industry-led initiative launched in February 2021 with the support of the European Commission which has officially endorsed the initiative in the updated European Industrial Strategy. It follows the successful blueprint of the European Battery Alliance, and is open to all stakeholders interested in being part of the European PV value-chain.

One goal. The initiative aims at anchoring a solid solar PV industrial capacity in Europe by 2025, along the full solar PV value chain: solar cells, module and inverter manufacturing, downstream industry. It sets the objective of a 20-GW manufacturing capacity by 2025, creating a recurring €40bn of GDP per year and 400,000 new direct and indirect jobs along the PV value-chain as of 2025.

Three operational pillars. The European Solar Initiative comprises an industrial pillar (the Solar Manufacturing Accelerator) aimed at structuring the value chain and facilitate the emergence of new projects and an investment pillar (the Solar Business Investment Platform) aimed at facilitating the access of new projects to investments and a policy pillar aiming at keeping a close contact with governments.

In 2021s edition of the Solar Industry forum, our Secretary General was the keynote speaker on the first session on day one, September 7th.
The presentation covered driving forces on the PV market in COVID times and what can we expect in the coming months and years. The session provided an overview of the situation of the PV market and the industry in general. Future possible development paths were also highlighted.  

Following the presentation on the policy forum session, a discussion between high-level representatives of the European Parliament, the European Commission, and PV  specialists was held.

ESMC is one of the supporting organizations of the 2021 European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition — EU PVSEC — which takes place online 06 – 10 Sept 2021.

ESMC organized and took part in two sessions under the 2020 Solar Industry Forum. The sessions can be watch afterwards at this link.
