France’s President Francois Hollande has called for an ‘Airbus’ style model of collaboration for the European solar industry.

On Tuesday, Hollande said collaboration with Germany in the energy sector would be a “beautiful alliance”.

“Germany has a head-start in renewables, but we have our vanguard in energy storage and power grids,” he said.

Combining Germany’s competitive advantage in renewables with France’s competitive advantage in storage and transmission could be a game changer. It may also be the thing that stops Europe from  falling apart politically and economically.
