‘Solar PV Big & Beyond’ – Delivering the 2030 Climate Targets 

ETIP PV Annual Conference

As part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission proposed in September 2020 to raise the 2030 greenhouse gas emission reduction target, including emissions and removals, to at least 55% compared to 1990.

The Annual Conference of the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics will discuss the challenges of delivering these 2030 climate targets to Europe. The EU has to move towards a climate-neutral economy and has to implement its commitments under the Paris Agreement by updating its Nationally Determined Contribution. ETIP PV supports all activities and steps to be taken to make Europe a leader in green energy and to build an independent, clean energy supply.

The event will take place online and will cover four sessions with a series of live panel discussions on
May 19 & 20, 2021 from 2 pm – 6 pm CET (Brussels Time) 

More details will be announced soon.
