Connecting Project developers & Capital

2023 Sponsor:

2022 changed everything for the energy industry. The geopolitics of energy security flew to the top of government agendas and gas drove power prices to new levels. This was set against a backdrop of rising commodity prices and supply chain challenges which had a real impact on how project economics were modelled and how quickly projects could come together.

Yet, despite these headwinds, the solar industry proved – once again – how resilient it is.

The 2022 edition of Solar Finance & Investment brought investors and lenders together from across the continent to share success stories, best practice, win new business and return to in-person networking.

The 2023 edition, our 10th anniversary edition will bring together the largest pool of capital and projects together. Reserve your space now to avoid disappointment.

An Investor’s Guide To Optimising The Development Process

Power Prices

Meeting The Eu’s 2030 Targets

Some investors are getting involved in projects at a much earlier as a response to competitive pressure but do they really understand how to maximise the development process; what challenges might emerge? How is digitisation helping some companies to expedite the process? What can be done differently in this new wave of development to avoid the mistakes of
the past?

We’re in the middle of a short-term gas crisis which is having a direct impact on the power market. Other factors such as extreme weather and high penetration of intermittent power in some markets are having an impact on power prices. How might this play out in the long term and how should investors factor these into future project development? Are these a long term trend and how much can they serve as an offset to higher
CAPEX?

Land and grid in Europe will become ever more constrained as the number of new projects increases. How will networks keep up and what can the industry do to ensure biodiversity and natural capital are protected? We also look at renegotiating land access and why this needs to be a priority for asset owners before agreements come to an end.

Grid Bottlenecks

How Is Finance Changing

Auctions Update

Where are we seeing grid bottlenecks appear across Europe? How are networks preparing to meet demand from the solar industry and are those investment and evolution plans enough to meet the ambitious goals Europe is setting for
decarbonisation?

Green bonds, mezzanine finance, bridging capital – how are lenders’ offerings evolving as the market matures? CAPEX?

We have seen auctions in Portugal, Spain, the UK (late 2021), Poland and more but the economics don’t always pencil out. We will hear from auction winners about their plans for some of these key
markets but also discuss options for those companies who decide not to compete. How are developers approaching markets of interest if they don’t participate in auctions?
