Photovoltaic Solar Energy European Industrial Initiative

Strategic objective: To improve the competitiveness and ensure the sustainability of the technology and to facilitate its large-scale penetration in urban areas and as free-field production units, as well as its integration into the electricity grid.

Industrial sector objective: Establish photovoltaics (PV) as a clean, competitive and sustainable energy technology providing up to 12% of European electricity demand by 2020.

Technology objectives:

  • PV Systems to enhance the energy yield and reduce costs
  • Integration of PV-generated electricity
