CIRCUSOL: Solar power business models towards a circular economy in…
On June 10, 2020, PV MAGAZINE invited CIRCUSOL partners to speak at the Sustainability Roundtable. The online event targetted energy powerhouses & small vendors to redefine their role in the next stage of Europe’s energy transition.
The experts from the solar power industry talked about why sustainability matters – challenges and opportunities in manufacturing and technology development in the context of an EU Green Deal.
PV materials, manufacturing, and development practices are being increasingly evaluated in terms of sustainability, bringing both complexity and opportunity. As an economic recovery from Covid-19 brings “green growth” to the fore, how technology, certification, and the corporate social responsibility demands of off-takers can bring sustainability to the fore and deliver a competitive edge.
CIRCUSOL partners represented at the event:
Eszter Voroshazi, R&D Manager, imec
Tom Rommens, Researcher and Project Coordinator, VITO
Bertrand Lempkowicz, PR, Marketing & Communication Manager, PV CYCLE
We need to shift to the (business) models where we try to sell services rather than products. Tom Rommens
