EU Funded Projects Helping to Raise the Competitiveness of the EU PV Industry

Jointly organised with HighLite, Hiperion, Super PV and Go-PV projects

Today the EU PV manufacturing industry is at an important crossroads given the recent global developments. To thrive in this competitive environment and differentiate itself from foreign competition, the EU PV manufacturing industry needs to: (1) focus on highly performing PV technologies, (2) include sustainability by design and (3) develop differentiated PV module designs and systems for a broad range of PV applications. This is precisely the aim of four large EU funded projects (HighLite, Hiperion, Super PV and Go-PV) which all started in 2018/2019 under the EU’s Horizon 2020 Programme for research, technological development and demonstration for a duration of 3-4 years.

This event consists of short overviews of the main results obtained for each project, followed by panel discussion with representatives from the European Union and leading PV industry associations on the next steps needed to further raise the EU PV industry competitiveness. This event is free to attend for conference delegates. We encourage participants to ask questions and contribute to the discussions!
