Start Date:27 Sep 11 End Date:28 Sep 11

Large scale rooftop solar PV logo

As the days of multi-megawatt ground mounted projects in Europe look set to be numbered, developers of utility scale PV plants are looking towards the rooftops which have largely escaped 2011’s tariff cuts and caps.

The Large Scale Rooftop Solar PV Summit, designed in response to the shifting dynamics in the European market, is the first meeting of its kind to focus exclusively on this increasingly important and rapidly growing market. Examining the whole of Europe, this unique summit will bring together system integrators, investors, utilities, technology providers and legislators with the owners of Europe’s large roof spaces.

Whilst the market appears to be the solution developers are looking for, it is not without its challenges. Tighter space constraints, greater structural considerations as well as the involvement of third parties are just some of the factors that make these projects more difficult to finance, construct and operate. Large-Scale Rooftop Solar PV will address these challenges head on and facilitate further expansion in this important sector.
