Directions for the solar economy
The photovoltaics industry in Germany is currently the technology leader. It wants to maintain this position on a global scale while offering competitive costs. There is high global demand for photovoltaics products "Made in Germany".
The vision of the German photovoltaics sector and the joint study are based on the claim that the sector can guarantee competitive, affordable, safe/secure and clean power generation from solar energy by 2020.
The solar power industry will therefore become a pillar in the system transformation in Germany and around the world: switching over to clean and independent power generation based 100% on renewable energies.
The expansion of photovoltaics makes an indispensable contribution to the struggle against climate change by cutting CO2 emissions. What's more, photovoltaics improve the security of the power supply and help protect resources better.
