The European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) represents members active along the whole solar PV value chain: from silicon, cells and module production to systems development and PV electricity generation as well as marketing and sales. EPIA’s mission is to give its global membership a distinct and effective voice in the European market, especially in the EU.
EPIA is a founding member of European Renewable Energy Council (EREC), Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) and PV CYCLE. EPIA is a member of IEA-PVPS (International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme) and EUFORES (European Forum for Renewable Energy Sources). EPIA coordinates the European Photovoltaic Technology Platform and co-organizes the European industry event PVSEC.
