Solar Europe Now – Call to Action for a solar-inclusive Green Deal

May 05, 2020

The European solar value chain raises concerns over lack of positive signals for the industry in the Green Deal.

Solar Europe Now

Brussels, 5 May 2020 - The coalition ‘Solar Europe Now’, which has been officially launched today, is calling for the recognition of solar energy as a key driver to deliver on the European Green Deal ambitions. This coalition which gathers currently over 90 actors from the European solar value chain is concerned that the current lack of financial and R&D impetus in the sector will hinder its development, halt the EU’s industrial sovereignty in strategic technologies and limit the EU’s effectiveness in achieving decarbonisation throughout the continent.
