ESMC is a new organization representing the interests of the European PV manufacturing industry. It is based on key industrial companies rooted in Europe and established organizations active in the PV sector. It aims at promoting the interest of the PV manufacturing industry and its value chain at the European level, speaking with one voice.


ESMC promotes solar manufacturing made in Europe, the creation of a political environment to support industrial manufacturing and research and maintain it at the top level globally. It promotes the development and investment in solar technology along the whole value chain, i.e. materials, wafer, modules, inverters and other electronic components to assist high level system integration as well as production of equipment in Europe.
