Solar Generation VSolar electricity for over one billion people and two million jobs by 2020
In 2008, as also during the years before, EPIA and Greenpeace had to update their scenarios in order to keep pace with the dynamic PV development. The global energy situation has changed even more drastically in just one year. If last year a window of opportunity for PV was opened; this year the entire front wall of the house has been torn down. The opportunity for action has not only become huge, it has become an economic necessity!
Energy prices are skyrocketing. Energy is becoming more and more unaffordable for more and more people all over the world. The global PV capacities have to grow faster and they can grow faster as Solar Generation V will show. The global PV industry is willing to take the challenge.
