    Communication activities

    We contribute to activities/discussions/policies which are targeting the re-built of an PV industry in Europe. We are member of the European Solar Industry Alliance which is focusing on facilitating investments in new PV manufacturing capacities.

    Other fields of our activities refer to providing our input to discussions/policies around the energy market design, electricity prices, carbon border adjustment mechanisms and CO2-pricing mechanisms.

    We are also involved in the discussions/policies around chemicals and their usage (REACH, F-Gas regulation).

    With regard to trade we are interested party to the Si-Metal Trade case.

    For all these topics we are exchanging informations and views with EU COM officials and providing additional background information to the EU COM on demand to support their activities.

    Meetings

    25 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
