This study notes the impressive contribution that solar is making to job and wealth creation in Europe today and in the future. Although the European Photovoltaic sector has been severely challenged in terms of installed capacities and turnover since 2011-2012, the sector continues to prove its socio-economic value in Europe, both in terms of job creation and Gross Value Added (GVA). This study also assesses the impacts of the anti-dumping measures (minimum import prices and annual import quotas) set by the European Commission on the import of solar modules and cells.
This report puts forward a series of suggested policy changes that could be beneficial, both at EU and national level, to allow the adoption of new solar business models, lower the cost of capital and increase deployment in a lower subsidy environment.
The Global Market Outlook 2018-2022 provides comprehensive historical market data, five-year forecasts for the main global markets, as well as an analysis of the segmentation between rooftop and ground-mounted solar systems.
This presentation explains the next steps for Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) in Europe, the next regulatory challenges for BIPV and how the to foster the synergies between BIPV companies and key players (architects, construction sector, smart cities).
This video presents the benefits and challenges of PPAs, by developing regulatory framework among all Euroepan countries.
This report looks at the intersection of solar PV and digitalisation and how new digital technology can be applied to solar. Also, looks at new and improved business models, the digitalisation of the entire PV value chain from manufacturing to operations and maintenance, and the use of smart technology to better integrate the technology into the grid.
This report is intended as a guide for both professional and non-professional investors and developers to the main application segments, financing schemes and business models for solar PV in Europe.
This report is looking at how a tendering scheme can be made ‘applicant-friendly’ while ensuring the cost-effective achievement of policy objectives.
This webinar presents the outlook global solar market development 2017- 2021 and provides analysis of leading global markets, trends, drivers and challenges of solar market growth.
This video presents the potential of solar PV energy around the world.
This report provides case studies from eight European countries of how policy can be used to encourage digitalisation and innovation in the solar PV ecosystem. Also, aims to support European policy makers in this crucial transition towards a smarter energy system and identifying existing best practices for the uptake of digital solar services in Europe.
This roadmap pathway is focusing on the standardized and cost optimal solutions to integrate solar thermal technology in all industrial processes, by developing collector structures adapted to industrial buildings, improved large-scale solar collector arrays, and new planning and design tools.
This publication tries to provide guidelines for policy and framework conditions related to solar heating and cooling, in particular solar water heating. It aims at providing a quick overview of the main issues to be considered for setting the right framework for the promotion of the solar thermal technology. Therefore, it outlines key recommendations and guidelines for the implementation of a programme for the promotion of solar water heating.
This guide aims at explaining the relevance of quality assurance for a sustainable market development, besides providing an overview of quality assurance measures applied to solar thermal products and installations around the world. It also indicates some possible steps in order to set up a quality assurance system in a country.
The Global Market Outlook 2019-2023 provides comprehensive historical market data, five-year forecasts for the main global markets, as well as an analysis of the segmentation between rooftop and ground-mounted solar systems. This report focused on the GW-scale solar power markets in 2018 around the globe.
This paper from the Industrial Competitiveness Task Force details SolarPower Europe’s key asks and recommendations to further support the growth of the European solar industry and outlines our key targets for a practical solar supply side policy.
