PV Implementation Plan
Our goal is to re-build EU technological leadership in the PV sector as well as bringing down the levelized cost of electricity from PV rapidly and in a sustainable manner.
The PV Implementation Plan
The Implementation Plan describes the technological and non-technological R&I activities that need to be implemented in order to achieve the strategic targets adopted in the SET Plan Declaration of Intent (DoI) on PV, as agreed in December 2015 by the representatives of the European Commission services, representatives of the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Turkey and Switzerland (i.e. the SET Plan Steering Group), and representatives of the SET Plan stakeholders most directly involved in the PV sector.
The DoI recognises that, building on the Integrated Roadmap of the SET Plan, public (EC and Member States/Regions) and private investment must focus on targeted R&I actions. The overarching goals are to re-build EU technological leadership in the PV sector by pursuing high-performance PV technologies and their integration in the EU energy system as well as bringing down the levelized cost of electricity from PV rapidly and in a sustainable manner to allow competition in electricity markets all over Europe.
To achieve these goals, activities targeting improvements on PV system performance, cost reduction, sustainability and innovations have to be carried out. Advances on BIPV products are expected by joint efforts between the PV and the building sectors.
