PAST Webinar /// Why is everyone talking about self-consumption?

October 17 15:00 CEST

Please note: The webinar will be held in Spanish

On the 5th of October of 2018, the Spanish government passed a landmark and historic decree (Real Decreto-ley 15/2018) that eliminated the notorious "sun tax" and paved the way for self-consumption. Self-consumption has sparked a lot of interest not only in the industry but among the broader media as well. Is self-consumption a game-changer or just a nibble in the market? What does this mean for all industry stakeholders? Join this webinar to learn:

  • Just how big is the self-consumption market?

  • ROIs for investors and main considerations for the private sector.

  • A pioneering view and the experience of 1500 installations by Holaluz.

  • A review of the latest regulations and incentives.

PAST Webinar /// Solar cannibalization in Spain and other market parity countries

RECORDINGS ARE AVAILABLE

With the advent of market parity projects in Spain and other southern European countries, the impact of the so-called "cannibalization effect" starts taking a bigger role as more renewables are added into the system. Multiple studies have shown that an increased renewable penetration tends to decrease wholesale power prices. In some cases, such as in Germany, these prices have even dropped below zero. What to make of this?

PAST Webinar /// Market & Grid Parity in Italy

RECORDINGS ARE AVAILABLE

Italy saw around 400MW of subsidy-free new solar PV plant installation in both 2016 and 2017. Even when leaving out the eventual auctions & tenders, there are already bountiful  opportunities for commercial and utility scale solar PV plant development in Italy.

  • Market & grid parity in Italy today

  • How to develop subsidy-free solar PV plants

  • What's new from the legislation point of view

PAST Webinar /// Solar Market Parity in Europe: Challenges & Opportunities

RECORDINGS ARE AVAILABLE

Solar Market Parity is on the horizon for several European markets such as Italy, Spain, Portugal and others. In theory, the case for going solar is simple: if solar can survive without subsidies, then it is ready for large-scale adoption. However, theory never fits into practice.

Join us for this webinar as we explore the future of solar in Europe. Topics to be discussed:

  • What is Solar Market Parity and what is the current state

  • Challenges confronted in a subsidy-free world

  • How do opportunities look like? Merchant vs. PPAs.

  • Case study from Italy

With great parity comes great responsibility.
