Our mission

Our mission is to empower the UK solar transformation.

We are paving the way for solar to deliver the maximum possible share of UK energy by 2030 by enabling a bigger and better solar industry. We represent both solar heat and power, and have a proven track record of winning breakthroughs for solar PV and solar thermal.

Growing the solar industry

We want to see Britain’s solar industry and our member companies grow. We work to educate new end markets about the benefits of solar and help our members embrace new complementary technologies. We continually strive to foster a solar supply chain here in the UK and are seeking to create a community of solar users.

Driving quality in solar

We look to continually improve minimum standards and shape and promote best practice in the industry, from domestic solar PV and thermal systems to large-scale solar farms.

Speaking on your behalf

We speak on behalf of the UK solar industry, championing the technology in the media and providing advice and analysis to government, regulators, decision makers and other stakeholders. We know that a strong industry needs a strong voice, to represent the sector’s interests and deliver a framework in which businesses can grow.
