EPIA Launches European Photovoltaic Observatory


The European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) has launched the European Photovoltaic Observatory, which will identify beneficial conditions for market development and best practices for sustainable development of PV, promoting market transparency and harmonization across Europe.

The Photovoltaic Observatory is structured around three main goals: sustainable support schemes, streamlined administrative procedures and efficient grid-connection processes, EPIA says.

Although PV still requires political support in order to sustainably reach full cost competitiveness with traditional energy sources, the Photovoltaic Observatory represents ‘an essential instrument to advise national and European decision-makers for the successful implementation of their support policies,’ states Ingmar Wilhelm, president of EPIA.
