Solar and renewables are becoming the most competitive energy sources worldwide. Solar PV alone has seen a cost reduction of over 90% in the last 10 years, bringing our technology closer than ever to grid parity. In the meantime, new emerging business models (PPAs, participative financing) create new opportunities for solar developers in a post subsidy era. SolarPower Europe recently organised a virtual event titled SolarPower Summit 2020, wherein we heard from the likes of Marc Oman EU Senior Energy Lead, Google; Alessandro Boschi Head of Renewable Energy Division, European Investment Bank; Elizabeth Reid, Partner, Bird & Bird; Jenny Chase, Head of Solar Analysis, Bloomberg NEF; Moritz Bernhoerster Director Global Procurement / Renewable Energy, AnheuserBusch InBev; and Bryan Dufour Strategy Manager, Renewable Energy, UL.
Google’s Marc Oman explained how the company aspires to source 100% carbon-free energy at all times. Check out Marc Oman’s and many other presentations made at the event.
