For the third year running, the European Union (EU) has set a new record for solar expansion, adding 56 gigawatts. This means that between 2021 and 2023 the market will grow by a full 40 per cent each year. SolarPower Europe presents these and other recent market figures and milestones for PV expansion in the latest edition of the EU Market Outlook for Solar Power 2023-2027.
In this Intersolar Europe Webinar, we will provide compact information on the most important key figures and market developments in the EU according to the market study. We will look at the prospects for PV in the 27 member states over the next few years, discuss the EU's expansion targets and take a look at the status of the EU manufacturing industry.
During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations will be made available on our digital content platform The smarter E Digital after the webinar.
