The group

The solar photovoltaic special interest group, Solar PV SIG for short, was launched at Greenbuild Expo in June 2011 to provide a forum for members within this industry. The group aims to provide a platform to inform its members on recent and future developments in the industry, as well as addressing best practice and tackling barriers to uptake.

The group's aim is to build the value of the UK solar PV supply chain. The group will provide members with the opportunity to network, share information and form links to the research base, as well as seeking to increase the amount of UK content in the supply chain and attract inward investment.

The group is industry-led with Envirolink acting as secretariat and hosting quarterly meetings.
