Due to a delay in the legislative process, the adoption of the solar package is expected to be delayed until the end of March 2024. In order to provide you with the most up to date information, this webinar will be postponed to an undetermined date. We will keep you updated.
Specialist speakers from the BSW-Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft e.V. (German Solar Industry Association) provide an up-to-date report on the recently adopted Solar Package 1, where regulations and subsidy frameworks will change in 2024 and how this is likely to affect the business conditions of the various PV market segments in Germany. Find out more in the free Intersolar Europe webinar.
During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations will be made available on our digital content platform The smarter E Digital after the webinar.
The number of participants is limited to 3,000 due to technical constraints.
