CTA represents Andalusia in this European project, led by Zabala Innovation Consulting. It is aimed at designing a roadmap for the Photovoltaic industry whilst proposing policy measures which can enable Europe to become a leader in this field of technology, thereby increasing competitiveness, and generating growth and job creation in the region.
In order to achieve this objective the aim is to create a powerful and extensive network including key European regional players in the sector, both from the demand side (120 industries) and the supply side (60 universities/research centres). It also involves adopting various regulatory procedures (involving 6 regional public authorities) in order to establish and reinforce a series of common policy measures.
The project, which was inaugurated at the beginning of 2013 with a budget of €157,600 and a completion time of a year and half, is focusing on three priority regions where the proposed policies and measures will be implemented: Andalusia; Rhone-Alps and Thuringia; and Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony. Apart from the project leader Zabala, and the CTA, which is representing Andalusia, the other participants are France’s Atomic and Alternative Energy Commission (CEA) and the Austrian consulting company Project Kompetenz.
