THE EUROPEAN SOLAR PIPELINE SITS AT 24 GW FOR 2020 DEPLOYMENT: ARE YOU READY TO GRAB A SLICE OF THE ACTION?

  • Delivering on 2019 Tenders
    With 2019 tenders reaching new lows, we will analyse the project economics which will enable them to be built
  • 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
  • Why CAPEX is only one figure to keep an eye on
    See how developers are shifting project economics and focusing more on the lifetime costs, than up front
  • Merchant projects in Europe
    Hear success stories from countries like Spain and see how companies are dealing with merchant risks
  • The depth of the C&I market in Europe.
    See how commercial and industrial offtakers are approaching solar, and storage and understand how to tap into these deals
  • Solar+Storage
    Find out how successful deals came together and how developers raised capital and selected equipment
  • Digitisation
    How are companies really applying digital technologies to their businesses and what are the real life benefits of increasing digitisation of the market?
  • Changing Contracts
    How is the humble PPA evolving? Is the move towards standardisation and open solar contracts for O&M and supply a help? How will companies deal with increasing complexity from co-located solar+storage projects or changing energy buyer approaches to procurement?
