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.
