Solar PV Electricity: Competitiveness with Conventional Energy Is Goal

Berlin, Germany [] The members of the European Photovoltaic Technology Platform and stakeholders of the sector gathering in Berlin on June 12 as the second general assembly of the Platform welcomed the publication of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for Photovoltaic Solar Energy Technology, which will serve as a reference on short-, medium- and long-term research priorities for Europe in order to consolidate its leadership position on a global level. The SRA will constitute a major contribution to provide guidelines for the new 7th framework program for research in Europe as well as for national programs. The Strategic Research Agenda is giving a clear message: photovoltaic solar electricity will be competitive with conventional electricity in Southern Europe by 2015 and in most of Europe by 2020.
