At a Glance: European Green Deal

The European Green Deal is a programme outlined in the political guidelines of the incoming President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. It aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, while boosting the competitiveness of European industry and ensuring a just transition for the regions and workers affected. Preserving Europe’s natural environment and biodiversity, a ‘farm to fork’ strategy for sustainable food, and a new circular economy action plan are other key elements. Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans will be in charge of leading and coordinating the work on the European Green Deal. A Commission communication on the matter is expected on 11 December, ahead of the next European Council meeting, starting the following day.

Stakeholder Press Release: European Industrial Strategy for solar

A robust European solar industry will deliver more than the energy transition: it can provide at least 500,000 highly skilled jobs for Europe by 2030 and increase value added.

With at least 80% growth expected in 2019, and over 20 GW of annual additional installations from 2020 onwards, now is the right time to support the growth of the European solar industry and provide EU solar companies with the means to compete at a global level.
