In a current relocation that is assisting Europe's solar manufacturing industry gather momentum in an unprecedented method, the European Commission has introduced state finance for clean technology manufacturing. This is to be accomplished using the Green Deal Industrial Plan (GDIP) for European Union. Additionally, the Web Zero Industrial Act has better offered motivation to the renewable resource landscape of Europe.
