The European Solar Days aim to raise public awareness of how intelligent energy solutions are being put to everyday use by citizens, particularly for solar thermal and photovoltaics. Several events take place each year all around Europe.
The European Photovoltaic Technology Platform, a project of the European Commission, is an independent and objective body which aims to be the recognised point of reference for key policy makers interested in PV. The Platform’s Mission is to develop a strategy and corresponding implementation plan for education, research & technology development, innovation and market deployment of photovoltaic solar energy.

PV CYCLE is a non- profit association managing a fully operational collection and recycling scheme for end-of-life photovoltaic modules throughout Europe. The association works on behalf of PV module manufacturers and importers active in all European markets.
The International Energy Agency’s Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) is one of the collaborative R&D Agreements established within the IEA. Since its establishment in 1993, the PVPS participants have been conducting a variety of joint projects in the application of photovoltaic conversion of solar energy into electricity.
