Dear Members of SolarPower Europe,
I am delighted to start as the new Chief Executive Officer of SolarPower Europe and I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to work with you. It is truly an exciting time for solar in Europe; our clean energy technology is now the lowest cost power generation source in the world, and I am glad that together, we can continue to lead the energy transition.
A lot has already been achieved. Most recently, the highly successful outcome for solar in the Clean Energy Package which ensures the right to self-consumption of solar and maintains priority dispatch for small-scale solar installations, thanks to the SolarPower Europe team and you, our members. This has not gone unnoticed, as SolarPower Europe has been shortlisted for ‘Best European Association’ in the European Association Awards 2019.
Many opportunities lie ahead as the European market has entered a strong growth path. We will work to deliver our vision: ensure that more energy is generated by solar than any other energy source by 2030!
Without you, SolarPower Europe members, our success wouldn’t have been possible. I would like to encourage you to continue your support and your commitment to our task forces.
I look forward to working with you and hope to meet you in person at our first event of the year, the SolarPower Summit 2019 on 6-7 March in Brussels.
