Investment in Solar energy is on the rise: It has moved from attracting venture capital trusts to the big institutional investors in a matter of years.
Solar energy has huge potential as an asset class, offering extensive opportunities to diversify funds, reduce risks and much more. In Europe, deal value rose a huge 80% to $30 billion last year, in spite of the ongoing debt crisis and downward trend in subsidies.
For this reason, it is time to host a serious London-based finance and investment conference for the industry, bringing the aggregators of solar projects together with the project financiers and investors to discuss, impart knowledge and look to the future of this ever-expanding industry.
The event has been developed to focus on growth, challenges and the prospects of solar investment and project finance in EMEA, looking at the changes in the investing landscape through discussion, case-study and leading keynote presentations from the forerunners in solar finance.
Key areas that the program will address include:
- Trends in solar project financing and investments in 2013/2014
- Projections for 2014
- Why is Solar becoming more attractive to investors?
- How to gain investor confidence in solar project finance
- Investment vehicles that are revolutionising solar finance
