Humanity must continue making determined efforts in resolving the climate change problem, and must keep working on developing renewable technologies, making them more accessible. Flexible solutions and cooperation between countries are needed. In Europe, for example, there is EPIA (The European PV Industry Association), which is responsible for searching for flexible solutions of the environmental problems by involving major solar industry players from equipment tools suppliers (i.e. thin-film characterization, etc.) to public utility entities. According to 2013 data on PV industry achievements, solar power’s future is bright: a minimum of 38.4 GW was added around the world, with China leading worldwide and Germany in Europe. However, for several European countries the numbers went down, including Belgium, France and Denmark.
The decline was mostly due to political decisions that lead to reduction of green energy incentives. This means that centralized involvement is required, along with smooth-running management. In other words, transition to wind and solar energy has minimum technological challenges but depends vastly upon proper governance. According to EPIA, with full integration of renewable sources of power, market policies and products must be adapted properly. Thus, a PV GRID project was introduced that basically aimed at reducing the legal, administrative and regulatory obstacles that may hinder the integration of PV systems.
