Energy for our Rooftops: A call to scale up solar/photovoltaic energy with our citizens and communities in mind

On May 25, 2022, a group of green organizations from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia, including the Circular Economy Institute, For the Earth and Greenpeace – Bulgaria, submitted a letter to the heads of state of their countries, calling on their governments to to be ‘solar champions’ and ‘to fully exploit the potential of rooftop PV’.

This action was triggered bt the European Commission launched of the #EUSolarStrategy #REPowerEU package on 18 May, with a mandate for rooftop solar on all new buildings by 2029.

According to conservative estimates, “solar” roofs have the potential to cover a quarter of the electricity consumption in the EU, producing 680 TWh of solar electricity per year.
