Statements from the Conference:

Jutta Paulus, MEP Greens/EFA Group, European Parliament
“Regulation around integrated PV must be updated, for instance agri-PV deployment should allow farmers to continue receiving farm subsidies and façade-mounted PV must be allowed on buildings with few exceptions. It may change the appearance of buildings – which is not necessarily negative, and surely much better than the effects of heat and drought scorching European cities due to climate change.”

“The EC released an offshore strategy, but I’d like to see a comprehensive strategy for all renewables that will promote the return of PV manufacturing to Europe.”

Rutger Schlatmann, PVcomB, Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin and ETIP PV Conference Chair 2020
“With the I3PV Conference, the ETIP PV working group Integrated Photovoltaics was delighted to present the wealth of opportunities this field has to offer. If we manage to exploit these opportunities, we can create a large number of new jobs and at the same time contribute significantly to achieving our climate goals. Europe is leading the way in this area and we expect the conference to offered a very clear view on how industry, science, and politics can work together to bring it to full fruition.”

Marko Topič, University of Ljubljana and ETIP PV Chairman
“The annual ETIP PV Conference brought the current R&I in a variety of PV technologies and applications that will expand and accelerate PV deployment. It was wonderful to meet online the distinguished speakers and to get insights into the latest R&I trends that will pave the way to restrengthen manufacturing in Europe.”

Prof. Dr. Wim Sinke, TNO, ETIP PV Vice-Chairman
"Packed with important and up-to-date information and insights, this ETIP PV Conference offered a great opportunity for inspiration in difficult times."

Roch Drozdowski-Strehl, IPVF CEO, ETIP PV Vice-Chairman
“The 2020 ETIP PV e-Conference offered a formidable program, linked directly to the EU’s strategic milestones. With my distinguished colleagues from the whole European value chain, I enjoyed to discuss solar PV contributions to the world carbon neutrality targets, and the diversity of its applications.”

Dr. Venizelos Efthymiou, Chairman of FOSS Research Centre, University of Cyprus
“The annual PV voice of Europe is clear and loud in shedding light on the benefits of going solar and sustainable: Integrated, innovative and intelligent. With the system evolution we are entering the wealth of being integrated and PV is highly suitable for seamlessly integrating and delivering. Innovative intelligent systems at the level of the emerging energy communities and the targeted smart cities can exploit this benefit and free Europe from emissions and fuel imports. We are looking forward to sharing our thoughts with you for building together this bright future.”
Enter the ETIP PV-Matrix and
Be Part of the European PV Value Chain

The ETIP PV-Matrix is a joint initiative led by the European Technology and Innovation Platform for PV (ETIP PV) and SOLARUNITED in close cooperation with ESCM, SolarPower Europe and the VDMA Photovoltaic Equipment.
The ETIP PV-Matrix along with the Solar Manufacturing Accelerator will be the meeting point for all industry stakeholders to exchange cutting edge information and raise their knowledge about the future of the manufacturing industry in the European PV sector.  As the European industry grows, so will the ETIP PV-Matrix.
