Complimentary virtual roundtable (90 minute duration)
Wednesday 21 October 2020
Solar PV and wind are growing rapidly and dominate the electricity mix by 2050, when they each have a 31% share. This is 14 times today’s 1,250 GW capacity, resulting in annual installations averaging around 780 GW in the 2040s. This growth represents substantial opportunities for those parties involved in solar PV, wind generation and energy storage.
But the co-location of energy storage and renewables projects is still a relatively new concept requiring new business models and thinking to understand the opportunities and risks of integration.
On the morning of 21 October, DNV GL and BDO LLP will be discussing current trends and technical challenges and will be joined by a panel of experts from across the industry to share their perspectives on the future of the market in the UK.
