Summary

The Solar Keymark Mission - 2:

  • The Solar Keymark is to be the general “key” to all European markets - “opening all doors” to national and regional subsidy schemes and regulations

  • Solar Keymark will work besides the specific “keys” to the national and regional regulations and subsidy schemes
