Europe Solar + Energy Storage Congress 2019 is largest deal-making platform in Europe that anticipates and manages the changes of Europe’s immense solar and energy storage energy market. Aiming to lay the groundwork for the development, investment, and partnership across renewable energy projects, the event brings together regulatory agencies, electricity utilities, IPPs, developers, financiers, and other third party associates.
Topic Highlights • 10-year European PV Progress Report & Future Projection • 6 Key Spots under Watch (Italy, Germany, UK, Spain, Dutch, Poland) • Dynamic PV Secondary Market (O&M, AM, and Finance) • Solar Storage for Grid Services and C&I Power Users • Empowering islands with Solar Storage • Digital Disruption for Future Energy Trading
THE MARKET TO ESTABLISH YOUR SOLAR STORAGE SUCCESS
In the past decade, the European PV Market is largely driven by its Renewable Energy Directive 2009” (RED) (2009/28/EC1), which set the overall EU target of 20% final energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020, as well as binding national targets for each Member State. On June 14, 2018, the figure is further pushed for 32% renewables share by 2030, after a revised RED agreement reached by the European Commission, Parliament and Council. Currently the solar capacity in Europe achieves 116 gigawatts, with medium projection of 15.7 gigawatts annual installations by 2021.
On the other hand, energy storage becomes an unstoppable trend, projected to attract a total investment of USD$ 103 Billion between 2016 and 2030. Alongside higher penetration of solar, proper usage of energy storage solutions can help stabilize the grid, allow more efficient and reliable utilization of power, as well as add flexibility to the entire energy system.
Whitepaper: Insights into Europe's Solar + Energy Storage Market
This report is aimed to provide an overview for “Solar + Storage” systems, as well as the current situation of solar and storage markets across Europe, especially in some representative country markets (Spain, Germany, the U.K., the Netherlands, Poland and Italy), from the perspectives of investment, projects, policies, resource and geography. For a more clear insight, several “Solar and Storage” case studies are provided particularly in Section 3.
REPORT: UPDATE ON EUROPEAN ENERGY STORAGE LANDSCAPE
2018 was a record-breaking year for energy storage in Europe. The market looks set to flourish as the energy transition accelerates. More than 1.4GW energy storage projects have been announced in Europe last year. In total, over 4.4 GW of energy storage projects have been announced for Europe over the past decade, with approximately 1.2GW energy storage projects reached operational stage. Clean Horizon, a global leading consulting firm in energy storage sector, released an update on European energy storage landscape with its global strategic partner Leader Associates.
