Wim Sinke, Principal Scientist of TNO Solar Energy

Wim Sinke, Principal Scientist of TNO Solar Energy has been reelected as Vice-Chairman of the ETIP PV. Marko Topič, Professor at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Affiliate Professor at the Colorado State University, was reelected as ETIP PV Chairman. Roch Drozdowski-Strehl, Chief Executive Officer of L’Institut Photovoltaïque d’Île-de-France (IPVF), was elected as new Vice-Chairman of the ETIP PV.

Wim Sinke
: “Renewable electricity will be the ‘primary fuel’ in our future sustainable energy system and PV together with wind energy are the main suppliers. It is essential to meet the very important global, European and national emission reduction targets, but also offers great economic opportunities. Teaming up and joining forces between member states and stakeholder groups will enable Europe to be successful in very large-scale deployment of PV systems and in manufacturing of the advanced, integrated and circular building blocks needed. This, in short, is ETIP PV’s reason of being, track record and challenge for the coming years. It is my honor and pleasure to serve this cause as a Vice-Chairman for another term, together the great group of people active in and around ETIP PV.”
