The current debates and events constantly raise new questions relating to the issue of energy and the environment. Barbara Rudek, Manager Governmental Policy Affairs at Sharp Solar, is travelling round Europe and meeting the experts and key players in the industry to gather exciting views on the issue of solar energy for you!
How do things really stand with photovoltaics in Europe? What opportunities and potentials are offered by photovoltaics, and what risks is solar technology facing on its successful campaign through Europe?
This is what Sharp would like to find out from market researchers, politicians, business representatives and investors. And, above all, what solutions, models and ideas are available to enable our solar energy provision to be implemented in future?
Sharp is an active player and contributor. There’s no dodging the issue!
