The European Solar Initiative was founded by Solar Power Europe and the EU innovation network Inno Energy and is designed to support the renaissance of the photovoltaic industry in Europe.

Solar Power Europe and the EU Inno Energy Innovation Network have launched the European Solar Initiative (ESI) to re-establish a strong photovoltaic industry in Europe across the entire value chain - from raw materials to recycling. The initiative grew out of the Solar Manufacturing Accelerator, an initiative of European photovoltaic players, and aims to help accelerate Europe's climate agenda and economic recovery, avoid critical dependencies, and achieve the goals of the European Green Deal. The initiative focuses on the generation of a European technology ecosystem, the financing and risk hedging of various industrial projects and an appropriate regulatory framework.
