SolarPower Europe and EIT InnoEnergy have launched the European Solar Initiative to seize the anticipated photo voltaic PV growth over the subsequent decade.
The industry-led initiative with the help of the European Commission is aimed to scale up a robust PV manufacturing in Europe throughout the whole worth chain from uncooked supplies to recycling.

An extra 20GW of annual photo voltaic demand in Europe is forecast for the subsequent decade. This is anticipated to generate €40 billion (US$48 billion) of GDP yearly and create 400,000 new direct and oblique jobs throughout the PV worth chain.
“As the bottom value and most job-intensive renewable expertise, photo voltaic is poised to ship the objectives of the European Green Deal and Green Recovery,” says Walburga Hemetsberger, CEO of SolarPower Europe.
“The momentum is constructing to scale up manufacturing actions within the EU, primarily based on the sturdy home market uptake confirmed in 2020.”
The European Solar Initiative attracts on the ecosystem of photo voltaic PV gamers created through the years by SolarPower Europe and the expertise of its Solar Manufacturing Accelerator in addition to the blueprint of the European Battery Alliance, led by EIT InnoEnergy.
The Battery Alliance’s Business Investment Platform (BIP) was designed to speed up transactions between investee and investor throughout the worth chain by decreasing the dangers for the respective events and shortening the time to funding.
“Enabling strategic worth chains which speed up the vitality transition is on the core of EIT InnoEnergy’s mission,” provides Diego Pavia, CEO of EIT InnoEnergy.
“The mixture of nationwide vitality and local weather plan demand, low value of capital, notable successes in European expertise improvement and a return of funding into the sector has created fertile floor for a rebirth of European PV.”
The initiative is EIT InnoEnergy’s third after the Battery Alliance, in addition to the European Green Hydrogen Acceleration Centre (EGHAC), which was shaped in October 2020.

The Solar Manufacturing Accelerator was launched in May 2020 as a platform to help photo voltaic undertaking improvement with accomplice and investor identification.
The Solar Business Investment Platform is open to undertaking builders and private and non-private financing establishments.
