Talk of session: European Markets: Status & Strategies for Speeding up PV Deployment

After the European Union's solar market grew by nearly 50 percent to over 40 GW in 2022, this year's growth levels could be similar if the member states follow the ambitious guidance of the European Commission's RePowerEU plan, which aims to overcome Europe's dependence on Russian gas.

This session will cover:

  • The status of demand for solar power in Europe
  • New European 5-year installation forecast
  • Challenges & opportunities in Europe's fastest-growing markets
