The Delegation of the European Union to Australia is seeking to stimulate dialogue on solar PV circularity through a series of workshops aimed at informing PV recycling policies in Australia and raising awareness around PV recycling as part of an EU-Australia bilateral project.

APVI members ITP Renewables and UNSW Sydney have been engaged to facilitate a series of policy dialogue workshops engaging key stakeholders, government agencies, industry bodies, and industry experts. The workshops will cover aspects of what can be done during the manufacturing phase to make solar PV panels more recyclable, during operation to avoid unnecessary PV waste with early retirement of functioning systems, as well as at the end-of-life with product stewardship and logistics considerations for Australia. Workshops will be hybrid to allow for virtual and physical participation.

You can register interest here. Please also inform anyone in your company who might be keen to participate.

More details on each of the workshops, the project, and our team are provided here.
