Collaboration for Clean Energy
SEIA — Solar Energy Industry Association
Established in 1974, the Solar Energy Industries Association is the national trade association of the solar energy industry. As the voice of the industry, SEIA works to make solar a mainstream and significant energy source by expanding markets, removing market barriers, strengthening the industry and educating the public on the benefits of solar energy.
EPIA — European Photovoltaic Industry Association
With over 230 Members drawn from across the entire solar photovoltaic (PV) sector, the European Photovoltaic Industry Association is the world’s largest photovoltaic industry association. EPIA Members are present throughout the whole value-chain: from silicon, cells and module production to systems development and PV electricity generation as well as marketing and sales. EPIA’s mission is to deliver a distinct and valuable service driven from the strength of a single photovoltaic voice.
SEPA — Solar Electric Power Association
The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) is your unbiased non-profit resource for information about solar technologies, policies, and programs. SEPA focuses on working with electric utilities, but provides value to all businesses that have an interest in solar energy.
CALSEIA — California Solar Energy Industries Association
California Solar Energy Industries Association supports the widespread adoption of solar thermal and photovoltaic systems by educating consumers, supporting solar legislation and conducting business in a professional and ethical manner.
PVThin educates on the significant contribution of advanced, thin-film photovoltaic solar technology to the global energy supply. PVThin’s unique combination of economic and environmental characteristics makes it the preferred choice for many solar power applications. Competitive costs of manufacturing and ownership, outstanding field performance and environmental leadership across the value chain point the way to a sustainable solar future.
PV CYCLE was founded in July 2007 to implement the photovoltaic industry’s commitment to set up a voluntary take back and recycling program for end-of-life-modules and to take responsibility for PV modules throughout their entire value chain. Through PV Cycle, the photovoltaic industry wants to install an overall waste management and recycling policy which achieves the highest economically feasible and environmentally responsible collection and recycling of PV modules.
Dii — Desertec Industrial Initiative
Dii is a unique private industry joint venture that was launched as the 'Desertec Industrial Initiative' in July 2009. We aim at creating the conditions for an accelerated implementation of the Desertec concept in EUMENA. Our joint venture was founded under German law as a GmbH (limited liability company) in Munich on 30 October 2009.
Established in 1990 in Brussels, TechAmerica Europe focuses on managing issues surrounding environment, regulatory standards, security policy and the impact of EU policies on transatlantic trade, investments, jobs, research, education and community affairs throughout Europe. Members employ over 500,000 people in Europe, active throughout the high technology spectrum, from software, semiconductors and computers to Internet technology, advanced electronics and telecommunications systems and services.
AmChamEU — American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union
AmCham EU speaks for American companies committed to Europe on trade, investment and competitiveness issues. It aims to ensure a growth-orientated business and investment climate in Europe. AmCham EU facilitates the resolution of transatlantic issues that impact business and plays a role in creating better understanding of EU and US positions on business matters. Aggregate U.S. investment in Europe totaled €1.4 trillion in 2009 and currently supports more than 4.5 million jobs in Europe.
EUFORES — The European Forum for Renewable Energy Sources
EUFORES is a European cross-party network of Members of Parliaments from the European Parliament as well as from the EU27 national and regional Parliaments. EUFORES' core objective is the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency. EUFORES is supported by a variety of non-parliamentary members from the renewable energy industry, scientific institutes, energy agencies and NGOs - all strongly committed to renewable energy and energy efficiency.
CEC — Clean Energy Council
The Clean Energy Council is the peak body representing Australia’s clean energy sector. It is an industry association made up of more than 440 member companies operating in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency. The CEC’s members are involved in the development or deployment of clean energy technologies such as bioenergy, cogeneration, energy efficiency, geothermal, hydro, solar, solar hot water, wave and tidal and wind.
