2 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 EPIA is the world's largest industry association devoted to the solar PV electricity market Represents 200 members constituting 95% of EU PV Industry Silicon feedstock Ingots and wafers Cells Modules Inverters & BOS Systems Integration EPIA builds on a strong network of alliances Memberhips EREC IEA-PVPS PV GAP ARE PV CYCLE EUFORES Partnerships World Bank UNEP/UNDP Greenpeace National PV Associations National Energy Agencies SEMI EPIA members represents the whole PV value chain

3 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 EPIA is the reference Advocacy and Information platform for PV EPIA influences key decision makers at national, EU and global levels EPIA is a reference consultancy and information provider about market, legislative, scientific and technology developments EPIA provides an unique Networking Platform through International Conferences, Workshops and expert working groups meetings

4 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 EPIA influences key decision makers at EU and National levels Shaping the EU 20/20/20 directive on RES adopted in Dec % renewable in energy mix 20 % increase of energy efficiency 20 % decrease of greenhouse gases (GHG) Propagating Best Practices and coordinating National Action Plans (translation of EU directive in national legislations) Representing PV in EU Strategic Energy Technology (SET) plan EPIA infuences key other pieces of legislation Third Energy Package (liberalisation of Energy Sector) EPBD (Energy Performance of Buildings) REACH, WEEE, ROHS Chemicals, Hazardous substances; Recycling)

5 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 EPIA is a key consultancy and information provider « SET For 2020 » building Strategic Roadmap for PV to cover up to 12% of EU electricity demand by 2020 Leading policy, market, technical & scientific workshops Releasing reference publications Website and PV information database

6 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 EPIA provides a unique networking platform SET 2020 Strategic Roadmap (22 & 23 Feb 2009 – Brussels) Global Market Workshop (20 Mar 2009, Frankfurt- Germany) 2 nd Intl Thin Film Conference (13 Nov 2009, Munich - Germany) 3 rd Investment Conference (7-8 Apr 2009, Frankfurt - Germany) 3 rd PV Med (June 2009 – Turkey – Tbc) 24 rd PVSEC (partner WIP) ( Sep 2009, Hamburg - Germany)

7 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 PV is key to address the triple, challenge of GCC, SoS & Economic recovery « PV Market creates the PV Industry» Germany, jobs, Spain jobs created « Solar Valley » created ex-nihilo in economically depressed ex-Eastern Germany Green Industry is at core of new economic growth Attracts outside investment Creates employment for a range of qualifications (engineers to installers) that are mostly local & non displaceable jobs in depressed industries: domestic manufacturing, construction workers, roofers, electricians,..) At the center of President Obamas Green Stimulus plan « …150 bn$ over 10 years, creating up to 5 million jobs in clean technologies… »

8 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 Introducing FITs in Gainesville is key to promote its further generalisation FITs proven to be the most efficient PV support mechanism Simple : accessible for homeowners (high volume /low value transactions) Proven to be the most cost effective Provides investment security Drives technology prices down through degression rates Mechanisms exist to control global cost Proven to be successful Wide EU experience available providing best practices Gainesville must constitute a case model for generalization of FITs in Florida and in the USA

9 CMS DeBacker presentation 13/03/2008 EPIA delegation strongly welcomes and supports the implementation of FITs in Florida Q-Cells : Worlwide leader in cells manufacturing SMA : Worlwide leader in inverters manufacturing Isofoton : Leading Spanish manuf., present in 60 countries Applied Materials: Global leader in nanomanufacturing equipments Phoenix Solar : Leading systems integrator SolarWorld : One of leading & largest PV manuf. in US Dexia Bank: Renewable Energy Investments
