European Technology & Innovation Platform PhotoVoltaics

ETIP PV Secretariat

The ETIP PV Secretariat works  in the framework of the ETIP PV - SEC II (Support to all stakeholders from the Photovoltaic sector and related sectors to contribute to the SET-Plan) project. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 825669. It started its activities in October 2018 and will finalize in September 2021.

The overarching goals of the ETIP PV - SEC II project are three-fold:

  • To increase cohesion of the stakeholders in the PV sector to reach agreements on concrete priorities and strategies for the large scale deployment of photovoltaic solar energy technologies in the context of the SET-Plan
  • To support the realisation of the Implementation Plan to achieve the targets of the SET-Plan Declaration of Intent (i.e. SET-Plan Declaration on Strategic Targets in the context of an Initiative for Global Leadership in Photovoltaics)
  • To support to the European PV Manufacturing and R&D industry



The main responsibilities of the ETIP PV Secretariat entail:

  • Organisational, secretarial and operational support to the Platform, including the Executive Committee, the Steering Committee and the ad hoc Working Groups
  • Preparation and organization of the Platform meetings as well as the Annual ETIP PV Conference and the ETIP PV workshop(s), round-table(s) or other event(s) in support of the SET Plan activities
  • Coordination of the flow of information within the platform and between the platform and its target audience
  • Perform editing and graphic-design work on the ETIP PV’s written output
  • Publish and publicise the main outputs of the WGs and the Platform
