It is vital to the competitiveness of the EU idustry that these ( or more accelerated ) goals are realised - quickly
  • Reaching the goals will lead to Potential at stake

step-changes in costs along

the “learning curve“ ( not just

scale dependent )

  • ...will determine the future

of PV and EU competitiveness

  • ...time-to-market is the critical

dimension

  • ...and we face structural issues in

“just doing it“, particularly compared

to Japan inc. ( role of METI )

REQUIREMENT : HIGH SPEED APPROACH ; RELIABILITY OF THE MILESTONES BEING ACHIEVED AND DISSEMINATED ; FOCUS OF EU EFFORTS ; RESOURCES LEVELS AVAILABLE

?

a new approach is required to making this happen
A new approach is required to “making this happen“

To

  • Clear unified strategy, focus and priorities for Industry and Research community
  • Clear, straightforward network and body(s) to formulate and drive the program
  • Clear application and quick priority driven decision making process
  • Clear and accessible dissemination to industry
  • Substantially increased funding to give a „turbo effect“ to the RTD effort

From

  • No clear strategy and priority setting for the industry
  • Many different influencing bodies ( EU and country levels with different bodies, organisations and gremium
  • Industry and Development aims not (yet) aligned ( at least n different Roadmaps ! )
  • Dissemination poor and slow
  • Insufficient funding, set to probably the wrong priorities
  • EU wide approach chaotic, intransparent and complex
  • Mechanisms and bureacracy too unwieldly and difficult

......and the list continues

addressing the change needs a suggestion
Addressing the change needs – a suggestion
  • EPIA ( as the voice of the industry ) and EUREC ( as the voice of the development community ) to align and harmonise approach
  • EPIA ( as the voice of the PV industry ) should take a more influencial role in formulating and determining EU-wide common ( but not company specific ) RTD and D strategy, policy and funding requirements, through

- it‘s constituent members in the form of a permanent RTD working group

- Coordinating and harmonising different RTD needs/efforts/bodies

- Coordinating, Lobbying and advising EU / Country decision making organisations

- Monitoring progress against the targets and recommending required actions to stakeholders

- Disseminating information to stakeholders

  • Overseeing the European common RTD portfolio to define required budgets – as a first Hypothesis an increase from ca. € 70 Mio to around € 200-300 Mio. p.a. over Europe will be required
decision making needs and proposed next steps
Decision making needs and proposed next steps

Decisions required

  • Formal “sign-off“ and acceptance of the EPIA Roadmap as the formal policy of the European Industry ( updates will follow )
  • Agreement to define out the route suggested going forward, subject obviously to final recommendations at the next EPIA AGM

Proposed Next Steps for WP2

  • Publication and Dissemination of EPIA Roadmap in Paris
  • Clarification of approach with EUREC and other stakeholders
  • Paris – Workshop re. RTD priorities and approach
  • Design of EPIA processes and mechanisms in order to fulfill this role for, with and on behalf of it‘s members
  • Set up of (a) internal capabilities ( resources ), and (b) permanent working group consisting of EPIA and other industry/Research stakeholders
