EUROPE'S LARGEST GATHERING OF SOLAR DEVELOPERS & EPCs

2019 Participants:

As Europe & the UK continue to see a growing number of new solar developments, this summit will look at:

  • Tenders – what do 2019 tenders tell us about the market in 2020? How should you prepare your supply chain to win business?
  • Equipment – how is the rise of bi-facial panels affecting project yield? Meet project owners who can share real life experiences
  • Attractive markets – get the latest updates on Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey and see how markets are developing in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe
  • Energy pricing, trading and merchant risk – forecast and actual across European markets and, how to assess what these mean for your projects
  • CAPEX – 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 and solar energy rather than just cutting costs?
