European Solar Markets Updates
On December 2019, the European Commission unveiled its proposal for a European Green Deal, with the aim to make European the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050. As the lowest cost and most easily deployed renewable technology, solar has a key role to deliver on Europe’s ambitions. This session will look at the key policy and regulatory challenges to make Solar the core of Europe’s future energy system, and deliver on the long term jobs and growth promised by the European Green Deal. It will also reflect on the impact of COVID-19 and draw-up proposals for a solar-proof EU recovery plan.
