Panel Discussion

As we see a rise in collocated solar and storage, questions still remain. Although the speed and ease of installing a battery storage project to capture excess solar energy is unrivalled, companies need to understand how to:

  • Model the benefits of a co-located model for developers and IPPs
  • Source finance
  • Decide on the ownership model for the solar and battery
  • Secure multiple routes to market
  • Select the right battery!
