Photovoltaic investors to meet in September


As an official parallel event to the 26th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) it will provide interactive sessions between key and new players in the photovoltaic industry and the financial community.

CEO-level speakers, bank representatives, investment funds, insurance companies and market analysts will all take part in the event.

At present, the photovoltaic industry is growing at record levels however investors face many challenges in terms of regulatory and market conditions. Shifting government regulations and changes to solar incentive schemes are also having destabilizing effects on the market and introducing a level on uncertainty. However, EPIA claims that conditions are "ideal" for photovoltaic investment.

It argues that economic conditions, environmental concerns and political will is converging to create an environment where photovoltaics are becoming a “fully competitive” part of the electricity system in the European Union.

The EPIA Investors Day hopes to provide information allowing investors to capitalize on this environment. It will address issues such as evaluating photovoltaic investments in different countries, financial exposure and investment guarantees, new business models and innovative financial solutions for photovoltaics.
