The Associate Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group (PRASEG) Solar PV Forum has been established as demand for solar PV is rising in the UK following the recent feed-in tariff scheme.
The UK Government expects hundreds of thousands of households to have installed systems under the new scheme, with a total PV market nearly 100 times greater than today by 2020.
The Solar PV Forum is sponsored by Sharp Solar UK and Solarcentury, and is being supported by the Micropower Council.
Alan Whitehead MP, Chairman of PRASEG, says: “The Solar PV Forum is an important and very timely addition to our work. We're launching it at a time when interest in the technology among voters has never been greater.
“The Feed-in Tariff scheme will deliver hundreds of thousands of household solar PV installations by 2020, so it's vital that Parliamentarians know more about the technology and its potential.”
