Over 50 companies/organizations have signed a letter initiated by ETIP PV, EUREC and SOLARUNITED which is addressed to policymakers of all EU member states. The petition calls on political leaders to “help preserve a sustainable and globally competitive European PV manufacturing industry”.
The letter highlights that solar photovoltaics (PV) is a sector of strategic importance for the EU economy, providing energy independence, industrial jobs and economic growth. Europe since two decades is leading in technological development, state-of-the-art manufacturing (industry 4.0), sustainability of production and quality and efficiency of solar products. There is hardly any other sector in the EU which received as much public dedication and thrilled more young people, engineers and scientists.
Due to recent developments, the PV industry is deeply concerned about loosing core parts of the value chain which affects all other parts and puts R&D activities and maintenance of EU's technological leading role at risk. The aim is to prevent loosing production sites in Europe and to keep PV's innovation ecosystem intact.
Together with the support of a unique R&D ecosystem this is the basis for the EU manufacturing industry to keep its significant technological advantage towards industrial followers outside Europe.
To maintain solar R&D in Europe, researchers and manufacturers called in the petition for urgent action in 7 requests.
