Summary

Keeping up with the complex and ever-changing national and supranational regulatory landscapes in Europe is a challenging yet unavoidable task. Nevertheless, an array of new and innovative business models offer new paths forward. Plus, while forecasts of future demand for PV solutions are already positive, recent innovations in energy storage technology also harbor immense potential for further growth. By examining the variety of financing schemes available and analyzing the suitability of PV systems for individual countries, this session will explore the sector's prospects in Europe in the years ahead.
