As a new wave of rooftop pipeline emerges, we will examine the opportunity for investors. First, we will outline the market in the UK with a presentation from Dr. Finlay Colville, focusing on the C&I space. We will then look at larger scale residential market growth across Europe and investor appetite for this space. We will compare the market with the US and assess the possible move towards aggregation of portfolios and then the wider needs that customers might have such as carports and storage.
