The Solar Commission is a unique partnership of leading academics, system operators and industry, including the Solar Trade Association. The aim of the Commission is to examine areas where the UK could use its scientific and technical capabilities to play a leading role in the innovation and industrial strategy opportunities being created by the rapid, global emergence of solar PV as a major form of power generation.
This report presents the conclusions of the Commission, setting out:
– key areas of innovation in the solar PV value chain where the UK has competitive advantage.
– the UK’s capabilities in these innovation areas.
– recommendations for UK to capitalise on the global growth opportunity.
