The meeting place for European investors and financiers to find projects

The business of solar is changing, as the industry scales up, technology, IT and new players to the market will add complexity. This sparks a host of opportunities such as co-location of solar and storage and the rise of unsubsidised solar projects as well as challenges which will question the very business model of European solar asset owners. 

Solar Finance & Investment Europe is the meeting place for institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds, solar, wind and storage funds and large energy buyers to do business. 


Always senior, packed with the very people at the forefront of the energy transition, this is the meeting serious contenders start their year with. 2020 is no exception, come to find out about institutional investors’ plans for the market, new solar markets, solar+storage, post-subsidy projects, large energy buyers’ needs, bifacial panels and trackers, Spain, Portugal, UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Netherlands, Greece, Ukraine and many more… and leave with new business.
