Alongside the founding members of WCP, Global Solar Council, Bundesverband Neue Energiewirtschaft (BNE), Coordinamento FREE, European Energy Retailers, Italia Solare, and Legambiente, GWEC thus becomes the first official full member of the Association.
Gianni Chianetta, President of WCP, commented: “With the involvement of GWEC, together with GSC, WCP can also count on the extensive participation of the two leading renewables sectors, Solar and Wind, encouraging stakeholders of other sectors of the green economy to join as well. GWEC’s participation will certainly greatly contribute in the promotion of carbon pricing mechanisms.”
