The conference “New dawn for large-scale PV manufacturing in Europe: reality or pipe dream?” was held on 24 June 2014 at the Thon Hotel Bristol Stephanie in Brussels, Belgium.
Are there signs of a revival in PV technology manufacturing in Europe or is the outlook bleak? What should a revival look like, and what can politicians do to bring it about? These were some of the key questions that were addressed at a conference that put the spotlight on Europe’s ability to sustain large-scale manufacturing.
Participants included different European stakeholders as representatives of the industry, research community, business experts and other professionals at large.
The event took place during the EU Sustainable Energy Week and was registered as an official 'Energy Day'.
