In the framework of the elections of the new Board of Directors of the Global Solar Council, held last week in Salt Lake City (United States), José Donoso, UNEF General Manager, has been appointed President of the international association. Donoso’s term will begin in 2021.
The Global Solar Council was founded in 2015, within the framework of COP21, by the main solar associations to unify the industry at international level, share best practices and boost the development of PV technology with cooperation, training and the exchange of experiences.
GSC members include national and regional associations of both emerging and consolidated markets, as well as the largest markets in the world, such as China, Europe, India, Japan, the Middle East, South America and the United States.
“The presence of Spain in the Presidency of the Global Solar Council shows the leadership of the Spanish PV industry in the world, at a time when, thanks to its growing competitiveness and flexibility, this technology has become a fundamental ally in the fight against climate change” said Donoso.
Donoso also highlighted that PV is a democratic technology that allows to produce clean and cheap energy. The development of this sector in emerging markets also generates a positive impact in the framework of the fight against poverty.
By representing the PV sector at an international level, the Global Solar Council will play a central role in the path towards an energy model based on renewables in which PV will be a key player.
