How to Secure Long Term Supply Chain Solutions for the Success of the Industry

The Solar PV supply chain is 90% dominated by Chinese-based manufacturers. This has, largely, caused few problems for the European solar industry with many quality Tier-1 suppliers supporting the industry for many years.

However, questions remain about over-reliance on supply from one country, as if there are changes to international relations, or trade agreements, many projects will be put on indefinite hold as they wait for panels to arrive.

The REPowerEU plan promises €1bn of “de-risking” funding to establish an internal European silicon solar manufacturing chain, but are such measures feasible, or even necessary?
