The so-called "renaissance" of PV production in Europe is a hot topic in the PV industry right now. However, little is said about what it means to bring the entire production industry back to European soil: Do we have the know-how in this country? The technical possibilities? The corresponding raw material supply chains? How profitable is production in Europe at all at present?
We talk about this with Prof. Dr. Peter Dold, Head of the Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics (CSP).
