STRATEGIC RESEARCH AND INNOVATION AGENDA
ETIP PV has developed a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) which focuses on solar PV technology as a prominent aspect of the EU’s commitments to its clean energy targets and global sustainability goals. PV technology has already proven to be economically and environmentally competitive but must first overcome certain obstacles in the processes of innovation and manufacturing, integration, and circularity. The SRIA analyses five interlocking challenges of PV research and innovation, topics broadly encompassed under themes of performance enhancement and cost reduction, manufacturing processes, quality and circularity, integration and double use along with public support and the socio-economic transition.
Following ETIP PV annual conference from 19 to 20 May, the SRIA summary is available to download and is open for public consultation; comments and suggestions will be accepted until 18 June.
