Korean industry association, SEIA announce solar partnership

The Korea Photovoltaic Industry Association (KOPIA) and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) have announced their formal partnership in an effort to strengthen the solar energy industries of both countries and boost the competitiveness of solar energy globally.

The organizations will work jointly to promote the healthy and sustainable growth of solar energy markets at home and abroad.  Specifically, SEIA and KOPIA will work together on communications, events, policy initiatives and market research to promote the adoption of solar energy.

Korea has taken steps to increase domestic usage of solar power and is also a manufacturer and exporter of solar products to the world’s largest solar markets.  Large Korean diversified manufacturers such as Hanwha, OCI, LG, Hyundai and Samsung, among others, have made great strides in recent years to ramp up their investment in solar manufacturing. OCI and Hanwha are active with project development activities within the U.S. today.
