Solar: Helping consumers and businesses control their energy costs

May 2, 2017 - Brussels, Belgium

Free to Attend

Solar is now cheap. In fact, it is a key part of helping consumers and businesses control their energy bills. This event will focus on what solutions and new business models solar can offer for those that up until now have had limited access to solar. It will look at how we can change the way we structure solar projects to reduce risk and increase access to finance. It will show how more and more businesses are using the long-term stability of solar PV to hedge against rising and fluctuating prices. 


Throughout the event we will focus on what policy changes are required to allow these new solar business models and financing schemes to be implemented. The event will launch the PV Financing EU Policy Advisory Paper and also present seven national Policy Advisory Papers that have been published for each of the countries studied. 


The PV Financing research project, funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, has worked over the last two years to identify the best business models and financing schemes for solar across Europe. The project has produced guidelines for putting in place different business models, template legal contracts and held workshops with banks and finance providers. 


This final event hopes to translate that research into concrete actions for policy makers.
