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

Smartenergy welcomes you to Large Scale Solar Europe

Large Scale Solar PV in Europe and particularly Portugal are key vectors for Smartenergy.

In light of this, Smartenergy is delighted to host this conference together with Solar Media, connecting ourselves with both the content and spirit of the event.

We attended several events but this time we could not let pass the opportunity to go a step further by engaging more actively.
