Today photovoltaics (PV) has become one of the most cost-effective forms of electricity production globally and in some regions is already the most competitive unsubsidised form of electricity. Despite positive cost and growing developments, European PV manufacturers are facing a decline in production due to competition from third countries. The fragmentation of the value chain compared to competing actors is believed to be the major factor for this decrease in the competitiveness.
SUPER PV is a collaborative European-funded project initiated in 2018 by 26 partners in reaction to this trend. Together, they target a significant LCOE reduction (26%-37%) for European-made PV by adopting a hybrid approach combining technological innovations and data management methods. Introducing superior quality PV systems will create conditions for accelerating large scale deployment in Europe and help EU PV business to regain leadership on world market.Learn more
