Energy Revolution Europe

Energy Revolution implies a more flexible grid. New tech to tuckle that challenge has been developed and is continuously under development. The new role of TSOs and DSOs and their relationship with aggregation is focused on. From microgrid experiences to upcoming virtual power plants and from prosumers and aggregators to large scale renewables or conventional generators living together in the same ecosystem Energy Revolution represents a natural link with the existing focus on renewable integration and energy storage. The focus on innovation and flexibility shedding light on the renewable energy sources of the future will play a prominent role in the track.

Beyond Bankrupt Bankables

This presentation focuses on the current state of the solar PV industry and how the current value chain exposes the rooftop solar PV segment to unacceptable financial risks. As it becomes more and more clear that terms like “tier 1” and “bankability” are not providing the level of reliability and certainty investors expect and that a brand is only bankable until it is bankrupt where do you go next? The answer is a back to basics approach with a clear focus on accountability and energy production. My presentation will detail how the PV industry and value chain need to change in order to meet the demand of the residential and commercial rooftop segment and offer the financial security they deserve.
