Specialization Area: 

The study will provide an assessment of the current situation of the PV sector in Europe and worldwide and identify options for a strategy, which would allow Europe to reinforce or rebuild its competitive advantage in the most promising fields of the PV value chain. The objectives of this assignment are first to assess the current situation of the PV sector in Europe and worldwide. This includes a thorough analysis of the industrial decline on PV manufacturing. Secondly, this assignment is to identify options and strategies to rebuild the PV manufacturing industry in Europe, capitalizing on the strengths and opportunities and/or mitigating weaknesses and risks.


For this project, JIIP, including its members Tecnalia and VTT, is in a consortium DNV GL, Trinomics, PWC and Ricardo.
