ETIP PV Newsletter December 2018_Photovoltaic Solar Energy: Big and Beyond - ETIP PV Publishes Vision for Future Energy Supply
ETIP PV envisions a world with 100% renewable electricity supply where electricity is accessible to all and where electricity makes major inroads into satisfying the final energy demand for living including communications, zero-emission transport and mobility, efficient heating and cooling, and even sustainable fuels, chemicals and materials. By applying Solar PV, buildings will increasingly become places of energy production and not only of energy consumption.
The strong growth of the PV sector is accompanied by high cost pressure, accelerated innovation cycles and dynamic deployment, clearly indicating that the quality of PV products and the holistic economy of PV electricity deserve special attention. PV is expected to deliver electricity at low LCOE, Energy Pay-Back Time (EPBT) and Product Environmental Footprint (PEF).
