New projects



On 12 - 13th October, the INCREASE project kick-off held its first kick-off meeting.


SolarPower Europe is a partner of this 4 ½  year Horizon Europe project, which will aim to:


  • Improve the quality and standardisation of building-integrated
  • PV technology systems, for example on heritage buildings!
  • Develop new technologies for more reliable and aesthetically pleasing integrated PV products
  • Foster cross-sectoral cooperation between all building stakeholders to increase awareness about PV integrated systems

Current Projects

ETIP-PV (European Technology and Innovation Platform for Photovoltaics) is the solar PV sector's representation to the European Commission. It is an independent pan-European Platform that supports the highest value solar PV-related knowledge generation, further development and deployment of PV technology


The platform gathers all relevant stakeholders of the research, materials, equipment, and manufacturing PV sectors, and provides strategic advice on all issues relevant to progressing research and innovation (R&I) efforts. 


RESiLEX, funded by HorizonEurope and launched in June 2022, is committed to strengthening each component of the silicon value chain by demonstrating 8 industry-driven innovative technology solutions, ranging from a carbon-free process to produce silicon and the reuse of silicon from waste panels, to producing silicon-carbon composite anode material for lithium-ion batteries.


RESiLEX benefits from five Belgium-based partner organisations: Ghent University, the University of Liège, the Comet Group, Recma Group, and SolarPower Europe, who receive a total funding amount of 3,267,711 € for the duration of four years to support innovation action.

A 4-year research project with over 12 million euro in grant value from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, TRUST-PV will improve the performance and reliability of solar power plants. To do so, the project will support the development of O&M-friendly and grid-friendly solar PV components and solutions in large portfolios of distributed and utility scale PV. 


The project is industry driven, gathering 20 organisations from across the entire solar PV value chain. SolarPower Europe is in charge of communicating and distributing project results to the sector, as well as supporting other partners with planning and new business models.

Past projects

RES Simplify was a three-year project funded by the European Commission, aiming to simplify and improve the administrative and grid connection procedures for renewable energy projects. As a consortium member, SolarPower Europe represented the solar industry, and closely involved its members in the project. 


Our last RES Simplify report, provides a detailed analysis of the implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive.
