Strategy Committee

The development of solar is closely linked to the evolution of the regulatory framework. European legislation in particular, will continue to play a key role in steering the energy transition. As a member-led organisation, we believe that the direct involvement of our members in shaping positions on policy topics is crucial. The Strategy Committee is the place for that to happen. It is in charge of positioning the solar sector on overarching policy issues and keeps a dialogue with relevant stakeholders and partners from neighbouring sectors, experts and policy-makers.

Under the umbrella of this Committee, we will encourage the set-up of specific Task Forces to work on concrete positions or deliverables on particular topics of interest to members.

Chair: Simone Diodato Antonelli (ENEL)

Vice-Chairs: Andreas Wade (First Solar) and Wolfgang Storm (Wacker)

The next meeting of the Strategy Committee will take place on 30 March from 10:00 to 16:00 CET in Brussels (rue d'Arlon 69-71).
