The report presents in four parts a summary of the EC Commission's programme on photovoltaic power generation (PPG) at the mid-1989 point. Part I offers an introduction to the programme, which consists of three parts covering amorphous silicon solar cells, thin film solar cells from alternative materials and the photovoltaic pilot programme. Part II gives a listing of the 71 public and private participating bodies along with a short description of the projects being undertaken and the progress accomplished up to mid-1989. Part III deals with the JOULE programme, which itself embraces models for energy and environment, rational use of energy, energy from fossil sources and renewable energies. Part IV provides details of other publications from the main PPG programme.
