Panel Discussion
The Solar Finance & Investment Summit is 10 Years Old - How Will Business Models Change in the Next 10-years?

Rewind the clock; it's March 2014 and Solar Media Ltd. is hosting the first edition of Solar Finance & Investment. The global solar market stood at 40 GW (up from 37 GW in 2013) and Europe stood at 7 GW of solar. The UK increased installations by more than 50% to around 2 GW. Subsidies were driving the market, the UK was still part of Europe, Solar Power Europe was still EPIA and battery storage was an emerging but far off prospect.

  • This panel will throw the runes towards 2033 and ask: "what does the next 10-years hold?"
  • Will the market decouple from gas?
  • How might regulation and support change?
  • Security of supply · Green hydrogen · The rise of the platform
  • How is capital innovating - Investment from large utilities and institutions
