Joint ETIP PVx EERA webinar: Overcoming Socio-Economic and Technological challenges of Photovoltaics Deployment

PV deployment is crucial for meeting the EU's clean energy targets and global sustainability goals, but its extensive rollout in the coming decades, integration into the energy system, and incorporation into living environments present significant technological and non-technological challenges. 


The upcoming webinar will shed light on the connection between socio-economic and technological challenges in PV deployment, featuring insights from the recently released white paper by the Social PV Working Group. It will specifically explore questions around:

  • The acceptance of PV of novel technologies and grid schemes;
  • How community engagement and social innovations such as energy communities contribute to the overall energy transition;
  • And how social and environmental responsibilities can be ensured for deploying PV
