All functions of ETIP PV at a glance



In the latest monthly column pv magazine, the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics (ETIP PV) presents its structures and recent activities. ETIP PV’s next information activities are planned at the EU-PVSEC conference on 18-22. September in Lisbon, covering hot topics such as digital solar electricity or updates on the levelized price of solar electricity.

ETIP PV experts are organized into six working groups: 1. Level costs of electricity and competitiveness; 2. Integrated solar power; 3. Digital PV Systems & Grid; 4. PV industry; 5. Reliability and circulation; and 6. Social PV.

ETIP PV is supported by a secretariat whose responsibilities are shared between SolarPower Europe and WIP Renewable Energies. The European Union finances the European Commission as it strives to achieve its climate and energy policy goals. There are several other ETIPs: for example for Wind or Smart Networks for the Energy Transition.

ETIP’s six solar power working groups are actively involved in continuously sharing their results in valuable publications to the European Commission and the wider solar power community. Recent highlights of such publications include the Strategic Research and Innovation Program for Photovoltaics (SRIA PV) published in 2022 in collaboration with the European Energy Research Alliance on Photovoltaics (EERA PV) or the latest white paper Manufacturing in Europe: understanding the value chain. for a successful industrial policy.

In addition to publishing and advising the European Commission, ETIP solar power works synergistically with the newly established European Solar Industry Alliance, which aims to enable the EU’s goal of 30 GW of local annual solar power production capacity by 2025. ETIP PV In addition, it connects solar and energy policy makers, industrial and academic research through outreach and communication through various events and conferences.

For example, this year’s ETIP PV conference “PV Innovation: Ensuring Europe’s energy-independent future with solar power” discussed how policy, supply chain drivers, research and innovation, international trade, economic growth and environmental and climate issues can drive the European recovery. solar energy supply chain. It welcomed distinguished speakers from the European Commission, including Enel Green Power, Wacker Chemie, Meyer Burger, Helmholtz Center Berlin, Fraunhofer ISE, CARBON, LONGi, McKinsey and Oxford PV.

In addition, during the 2023 Intersolar conference and exhibition in Munich, ETIP PV organized two side events – the first on the challenges and goals of the strategic research and innovation program in solar energy and the second on various integrated solar applications.

ETIP PV’s next information activities are planned for the EU-PVSEC conference on 18th until 22n.d September in Lisbon, dealing with hot topics such as digital solar electricity or updates on the levelized price of solar electricity.
