Solar Industry Summit UK 2011

Start Date:12 May 11 End Date:13 May 11

The market
In recent years UK-based market players have been able to profit from the development of rapidly expanding renewable energy markets worldwide, particularly in the field of offshore wind energy. However, compared to other European markets like Spain, Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic – which have been boosted by state incentive programs – the UK's domestic solar energy market was relatively unattractive. Indeed, its accumulated PV capacity has made little progress.

The UK's recently implemented clean energy cash back scheme, though, could dramatically change the nature of its domestic renewable energy market. For example, generous feed-in tariffs (FITs) became available from April 1, 2010. Under this scheme, energy suppliers can make regular payments to households and communities that generate their own electricity from renewable or low carbon sources, such as PV panels up to an installation size of five MW.

As other markets languish due to uncertainty surrounding future FIT developments, the UK solar market could become the place to be for system and component suppliers, installers and finance providers.

The conference
The Solar Industry Forum UK brings the players from across the solar industry together with representatives from politics, the financial world, the press and industry suppliers. This leading industry conference offers talks on all current issues facing the sector today. It focuses particularly on the political environment, market developments, technology, financing and marketing.

The solar market in the UK: current situation and expectations
Market situation and perspectives for solar energy worldwide
Political framework and the UK feed-in tariff
MCS certification
Financing and bankability
Marketing strategies
Quality and quality assurance
