2019 was the strongest growth year for solar in Europe since 2010, with more new solar capacity added this year than any other power generation
Europe is committed to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This unprecedented challenge will require EU energy systems to transform rapidly by leveraging significant amounts of investments over the coming decades. The financial sector is at a tipping point while investor preferences are shifting towards clean energy technologies, and sustainability factors increasingly affect the risks, returns and value of investments. However, EU countries face a wide range of obstacles and challenges that slow down the deployment of solar projects, of any form and size.
SolarPower Europe’s Finance workstream is committed to developing adequate solutions for the solar industry.
The Finance workstream will focus our work on shaping the European Agenda, since policymakers should reduce the market and regulatory risks faced by the solar sector; facilitate a dialogue between financial investors from the private and public sector, law firms and solar project developers to exchange on solutions for our members; inform our members about the best-practices for risk mitigation and innovative business models and financing schemes for solar projects.

The aim of the Finance workstream is to develop adequate solutions for the solar industry as well as ensure that the solar sector takes the opportunities arising from innovative business models, financing schemes and strategies for developers and private investors, that are key to take solar to the next stage of development in a post-subsidy era.
