Walburga Hemetsberger, CEO of SolarPower Europe said (she/her):


“It's great that the RED has been adopted today in Strasbourg. It's been a long road to get there, and it offers solar deployment some real relief around permitting. Now we need to make sure we ensure implementation comes as quickly as possible. And can't forget this is happening in a context of an immediate crisis in the solar supply chain”
