As the first subsidy free solar projects begin to appear, Solar Media is preparing to mark the dawn of a new era of subsidy free business for Europe and with nearly 4GW of large scale solar in the UK’s pipeline alone, the time for subsidy free solar has arrived.

  • Markets – where are the likely markets for the next post subsidy projects to take off?
  • Equipment – what’s “under the bonnet” of post subsidy projects and how is technology supporting a downward cost-curve?
  • How can developers avoid a dilemma that puts cost over quality?
  • Energy pricing – forecast and actual across European markets and how to assess what these mean for your projects?
  • Execution – where are developers bringing cost down, how they are negotiating with suppliers?
  • Finance – who’s funding pipeline and what returns on investment are they expecting in this new era?
  • Grid – how to maximise a grid connection with solar and storage as a discussion around ancillary services you can provide
  • How can you increase the value of solar projects rather than just cutting costs?
  • MIP – what next and what impact could other trade cases have on supply and cost of equipment
