Network for co-ordination of european an national rtd programmes for photovoltaic solar energy (PV-EC-NET)


PV-EC-NET is a Thematic Network of the representatives of the national RTD programmes for Photovoltaic Solar Energy (PV) of the EU Member States and two EU Associated States. The main target of PV-EC-NET is to improve the coherence of the PV RTD programmes within EU in order to increase the efficiency of the national and EC RTD budgets, now at 120 MEuro in total. To achieve this PV-EC-NET will implement an information network and perform a benchmark of the programmes. This information will then be used for the analysis of the position of EU in the world PV market. Based on this, PV-EC-NET will formulate a Common European PV RTD Strategy and prepare recommendations for future European Thematic Networks and Target and Key actions. In doing so, PV-EC-NET will address all aspects of PV RTD, including environmental issues (LCA' s), large-scale implementation and grid connection.
