ESP KTN Roadmap consultation event

UK PV Roadmap 2013

The ESP KTN and The Centre for Solar Energy Research (CSER) and The Welsh Opto-electronics Forum are working together to explore the needs, drivers and future expectations of the PV Solar Energy industry within the UK to assist in producing a new UK PV Roadmap.

On the 2nd and 3rd May 2013 CSER hosted a workshop to explore the needs, drivers and future expectations of the PV Solar Energy industry. The event and conference dinner was attended by over 30 key industrial and academic delegates working across the supply chain in PV with the Keynote presentation being delivered by Ray Noble of the Solar Trade Association.

The roadmap will inform funding bodies and government agencies of areas requiring vital funding. It will be an important tool in enabling a vision for the sector, including the supply chain in it entirety, whilst also addressing key issues such as incentives, training, public awareness and education.
