August 2, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Technology for advances in photovoltaics (PV) and the PV market should find leadership with the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA). The EPIA is currently under negotiations with the European Commission to support the coordination of the PV Technology Research Advisory Council (TRAC), and further to run the Secretariat of the future European Photovoltaic Technology Platform. PV TRAC was established to define a future vision for PV technology to 2030 and beyond, and to become a structure to implement the strategy involving all major stakeholders of the PV sector. EPIA has already started to work on major issues undertaken within the project PV Catapult. A vision report is scheduled for a presentation during a European conference in September of this year.
