Mission & Activities

THE VOICE OF PHOTOVOLTAICS IN EUROPE

EPIA – the European Photovoltaic Industry Association – is the voice of photovoltaics in Europe. EPIA represents its Members, who are active along the whole solar PV value chain and in related business sectors. Created in 1985, EPIA promotes PV electricity in the European market and gives its global membership a strong and unique voice towards European decision makers. EPIA’s mission is to drive the European energy transition, ensuring that photovoltaics play a crucial role in tomorrow’s electricity mix.

To carry out its mission, EPIA:

  • Represents its Members towards European policymakers and moves the debate on issues related to the PV industry and renewable energy in general

  • Develops targeted business intelligence on markets, industry and technologies, keeping its Members and external stakeholders informed and up-to-date on the PV industry

  • Communicates the benefits of PV to key stakeholders – including EU decision makers & opinion leaders, the media, the energy sector and the general public

  • Organises Thematic Working Groups (WG) supporting EPIA activities and reflecting its Members’ interests: Policy-Communications WG; Sustainable Development WG; National Associations Task Force

  • The association also takes part in several European Projects addressing issues of strategic importance for the growth of the whole PV industry

Finally, EPIA benefits from strong Partnerships and Alliances: EPIA is a founding Member of the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) and PV CYCLE. EPIA is also Member of the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power System Programme (IEA-PVPS) and the European Forum for Renewable Energy Sources (EUFORES). It coordinates the European Photovoltaic Technology Platform and develops partnerships at national level with national associations and agencies.
