Policy recommendations for European photovoltaic markets


By Marie Latour, National Policy Advisor, European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA)

The behaviour of PV markets over the last decade in Europe has taught us that not only it is necessary to optimally design support schemes, but that priority access to the grid for renewable energy sources and the reduction of administrative barriers are the key market drivers for sustainable development and essential for the markets to sustainably develop in the long term. This paper provides an overview of Europe’s PV market performance and delivers policy recommendations by means of EPIA’s PV Observatory model.
