22 Nov 2012



Press release

Brussels, 21 November 2012 - The European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) has launched an all-new version of its website, www.epia.org, with a stronger focus on important news for the solar photovoltaic (PV) industry. 

The all-new EPIA.org features a dynamic, user-friendly, news-driven format that will better inform the public, better serve the association's members, and raise our profile at European level and in the energy sector. It will also be a valuable advocacy tool in our efforts to promote PV technology with policymakers and other stakeholders.

The new EPIA.org includes easy-to-navigate sections on News, Policies and Events, as well as a special area for EPIA Members containing all information on Working Groups and Statutory Activities.

Popular features from our old website - such as publications, events, videos, and the Members Directory - are given more prominence in the new version. New features - such as Solar Facts & Figures, social media widgets and RSS feeds - are also displayed in order to strengthen the voice of photovoltaics in Europe. Together with the new website, EPIA has also revamped its Solaris newsletter, which is circulated to more than 17,000 contacts.

EPIA's new website and newsletter are now more useful and informative than ever before. They are also fully integrated with our social-media sites on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.


Note to editors:

EPIA - the European Photovoltaic Industry Association - represents members active along the whole solar PV value chain: from silicon, cells and module production to systems development and PV electricity generation as well as marketing and sales. EPIA's mission is to give its global membership a distinct and effective voice in the European market, especially in the EU.
