Greentech Lead Europe: Trina Solar, a global provider of photovoltaic (PV) modules, solutions and services, announced that its Head of EU Public Affairs has been elected onto the Board of the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA).

EPIA is a powerful voice in the European PV industry with about 180 members across the entire value chain. The association held its Annual General Meeting and the election of new board members in Brussels in March 2013.

Jodie Roussell, head of Public Affairs Europe at Trina Solar, successfully put forward her candidacy and was elected vice-president of the Board. Since the founding of the association in 1985, Roussell is not only the first female board member but the first female candidate for election.

The mission of EPIA is to represent its members to European policymakers, develop targeted business intelligence and communicate the benefits of PV to key stakeholders. Different working groups are coordinated by the association and are of strategic importance in providing industry insight and allowing members to shape the association’s actions and strategy which can have a wide-reaching effect on the industry as a whole.

The Board of Directors assembles every second month to discuss the progress of the working groups as well as the market and industry overall.

Trina Solar has been a member of EPIA since 2006 and with Roussell’s election to the Board the company looks forward to collaboratively working to shape the association’s strategy and programs for a resilient PV industry in Europe.

Trina Solar ranked no. 1 in Australia’s solar PV market

Trina Solar has also been ranked No. 1 in Australia’s PV market, according to a new report from Solar Business Services. Trina Solar was the most popular solar panel brand in Australia during 2012, accounting for 100MW of installations.

The rise to the top position is attributed to the success of its high-performing Honey Cell Technology based products, which are well suited for Australia’s rooftop system requirements.
