(August 24, 2010) — On September 9, a workshop organized in parallel to the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia will present the way the PV Legal database can be a powerful tool for project developers and investors to understand the legal administrative steps that need to be complied with when setting up a PV system in key EU markets.
The workshop’s objectives include presenting the PV Legal project and presenting the database. Result of more than 6 months collaborative work among 13 National PV associations, the database provides a wealth of details on existing administrative-legal processes and grid connections requirements in 12 key EU markets. It is a very powerful tool for all project developers and installers to find out clear and detailed information on adminsitrative barriers as well as existing legal remedies. A comparative analysis of required time, cost incurred in the developing phase is made showing best and worst practices across Europe.
Another point to the workshop is to review the most important barriers and progresses in key European countries such as Spain, Italy, France, Greece and Portugal to be made by national experts that have been involved in analysing the national situation in the research phase of the project. They will present tailor-made recommendations to reduce red tape in their country.
Industry representatives from the PV industry and the energy sector should plan to attend, as well as PV project developers, system integrators and distributors, utilities and grid operators, and service providers (consultants, bankers, insurers etc.)
Date: 9 Sept. from 9:00 to 13:00

The overall goal of the PV LEGAL Project is to overcome legal-administrative barriers during planning and installation processes (including grid connection) of photovoltaic (PV) systems. The project consortium aims at improving the framework conditions for PV in Europe and to allow for faster and more efficient market development in the various countries.
