About PVthin

Our Mission

To strengthen global energy security and help create sustainable energy infrastructures by promoting the social, economic and environmental benefits of thin-film solar photovoltaic technologies.

Concretely, PVthin is working to:

  • Strengthen global energy security and support the transition to a low carbon economy by promoting thin-film solar photovoltaic technologies
  • Cooperate with associations and industries that support responsible product management at end-of-life and internalised holistic environmental footprinting based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
  • Strongly encourage resource-efficient production, sustainable raw material use, and responsible PV recycling and recovery programs and technologies
  • Educate policymakers of the potential of thin-film PV and the environmental, social, economic and technological advantages of thin-film
  • Provide a platform for research into both mature and emerging thin-film PV technologies

PVthin is an international, not-for-profit coalition representing global leaders in the Thin-Film Solar Industry and broader value chain based on chalcogenide perovskite, tandem and heterojunction PV technologies.

PVthin is registered as a non-profit international association under Belgian law.

Chris Case PVthin President

"Europe is currently facing a period of major change. The European Green Deal and the Fit for 55 legislative package will present major opportunities for thin-film PV. I am proud and motivated to be at the helm of PVthin and represent the thin-film solar industry and its broader value chain based on chalcogenide, perovskite, tandem, and heterojunction PV-technologies. Our technologies will be crucial to achieve the EU´s climate ambitions."
