The uttermost importance of the regulation framework to trigger the development of a PV market has been recognized these last years in many European countries. For policymakers today one of the key questions is making the best choice to initiate and stimulate PV markets. In the aftermath of the financial crisis, EPIA has launched the PV Observatory initiative. It aims at analyzing the current state of regulatory frameworks in a set of countries, starting with the main European PV markets.
