ETIP Photovoltaics

ETIP Photovoltaics Secretariat

The ETIP PV Secretariat works in the framework of the ETIP PV Secretariat (Support to the activities of the ETIPs and technology areas of the SET-Plan) project.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101075398. It started its activities in September 2022 and will finalize in August 2025. These are the overarching goals of the ETIP PV Secretariat project.

To increase the 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 enable the implementation of the ETIP PV Vision and Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) by the Horizon Europe Programme 2025-2027

ETIP PV consortium is composed of SolarPower Europe (Coordinator) and WIP Renewable Energies.
