On 1st May 2007 the SUNRISE project has started.

The objective of Sunrise project is to enhance co-operation with important stakeholders such as the building sector and utilities. With reduced levels of subsidies the production of PV systems has to be more cost-effective if the PV industry wants to be competitive with conventional energy production.

Therefore, this project delivers the base to ensure a cost-effective supply of PV products by improving interaction and production processes within the European PV industry and involves all relevant stakeholders, such as construction sector and utilities.

Information on the project can be found at the website:
