"The Platform’s Mission is to develop a strategy and corresponding implementation plan for education, research & technology development, innovation and market deployment of photovoltaic solar energy, to realise its vision.
The PV TP-SEC III project aims at fostering the key activities of the European Photovoltaics Technology Platform taking into consideration the pressing needs in Europe for the next 5 to 10 years which are cost competitiveness of the European industry and integration of solar photovoltaic systems into the existing infrastructure.
The main objective of the project is to provide all necessary support to the Members of the Platform to make sure that in the upcoming decisive years the European Photovoltaic Technology Platform will still be a point of reference for the State-of-the-Art of PV in Europe and worldwide and will still be able to provide valuable documents considered as guidelines for a sustainable growth of the PV sector. This has to be done providing the Members of the Platform with a support flexible enough to be able to face the fast changes that will occur in the energy sector, where PV will be become more and more competitive with the conventional energy sources for electricity production and where the integration in the existing infrastructures have to be strongly improved.
The action will promote the cooperation among the partners and all the relevant stakeholders of the PV sector including industry, research centres, universities, European and National public institutions, civil society organisations and will optimise the coordination of the research work the areas addressed within the European Photovoltaics Technology Platform.
The activities of the PV TP-SEC III will be in line with the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC and with the Communication from the European Commission ""Renewable energy: a major player in the European energy market""."
