This year’s edition of the SolarPower Summit will once again take place online, from May 10th to 12th, making it an unmissable opportunity to hear the latest from the solar PV sector along with key electrification stakeholders.
The solar sector can be a driver of growth, as witnessed by the electrical contracting industry where the scale up of renewables and especially of rooftop renewables such as solar PV can contribute to more growth and job creation at local level. It is the most job-intensive energy source and has the potential to create more than 4 million jobs by 2050 along its value chain. It is also the cheapest and most versatile energy source and can contribute to the competitiveness of the EU as well as consumer engagement in the energy transition.
After the announcement of the Green Deal, touted as the EU’s new growth strategy, came the Covid-19 pandemic and its ensuing economic standstill, which put further emphasis on the need to foster economic growth and job creation. With recovery mechanisms being setup across the globe and in the EU, we are now at a crossroads that could led us to a brighter, cleaner future.
The 2021 SolarPower Summit has shrewdly been geared towards “Driving Sustainable Growth” to emphasise the will of electrification stakeholders to make our economic recovery a green success.
EuropeOn will be represented by its Secretary General Julie Beaufils who will feature in the opening panel discussion on “Driving Change Together” along with other key stakeholders in the energy value chain, such as representatives from the power sector, wind energy, solar energy and more. It is clear that an integrated approach will underpin any successful energy transition, meaning there is a need for strong alignment and cooperation within energy sectors. This session will shed light on the synergies between these actors to make the Green Deal and a green recovery a true success.
