Our story

Leading the Energy Transition

SolarPower Europe is the award-winning link between policymakers and the solar PV value chain. Our mission is to ensure solar becomes Europe’s leading energy source by 2030.

As the member-led association for the European solar PV sector, SolarPower Europe represents over 270 organisations across the entire solar sector.

With solar sitting on the horizon of unprecedented expansion, we work together with our members to create the right regulatory and business environment to take solar to the next level.

Our specialised workstreams, convened by our dedicated policy experts, bring solar organisations together to better understand and influence the current priority issues and legislation impacting solar development.

With an office in the heart of Brussels’ EU quarter, our strong relationships and partnerships with key stakeholders ensure solar’s leading role in the European energy transition and beyond.

Partnership is key. That’s why SolarPower Europe is a co-founder of the RE-Source Platform, Renewable Hydrogen Coalition, and the European Solar Initiative. We’re also currently participating in 2 EU research projects, 5 international projects and have established partnership agreements with over 40 organisations worldwide.

SolarPower Europe’s sector-leading analysts deliver definitive market intelligence to inform the work of our members and wider stakeholders, including the Global Market Outlook for Solar Power, EU Market Outlook for Solar Power, EU Solar Jobs Report, and European Market Outlook for Residential Battery Storage.

Alongside our publications, SolarPower Europe’s regular calendar of sector-shaping events engage high-level policymakers, and assemble solar stakeholders to learn, network and do business. Highlights include including the SolarPower Summit, RE-Source, and Solar Quality.

"Our vision is to lead our members to make solar the core of a smart, sustainable, secure and inclusive energy system in order to reach climate neutrality in the EU before 2050."
