Solarplaza announces The Solar Future, UK conference

02 March 2011

Solarplaza has announced its second UK conference on June 29 2011 at Central Hall Westminster. 'The Solar Future, UK' will analyse the UK solar PV market following the first year after the introduction of the feed-in tariffs (FiTs) and consider the future market perspectives. In other countries, such as Germany and Belgium, FiTs have proved very popular and have become a key driver in growing PV adoption.

Since the FiTs were introduced in the UK, Ofgem has reported over 22,500 solar PV installations, with the number growing every day. However, with DECC’s recent announcement about the Government’s intention to review the FiTs, the UK PV industry looks set to change.

“The review announcement has created uncertainty in the fledgling solar industry. There is now widespread concern that investment in new business and jobs in the UK solar industry will falter,” said Edwin Koot (pictured), CEO at Solarplaza. “The Solar Future, UK conference will be a prime opportunity for delegates to analyse the UK market after a year of the FiTs being in place and adjust their future perspectives.”

Industry experts from leading organisations and associations will present on a number of topics so delegates can:
• learn about the future of the FiTs,
• understand how solar PV can be a sustainable industry for the UK,
• learn where the PV growth hotspots are,
• hear how international developments in manufacturing could reduce costs
• understand more about the legal aspects when transferring roof ownership, and
• hear how installations work in practice.

Tickets for the conference cost £595 (+VAT), though Solarplaza is offering a £100 early-bird discount for delegates that register before May 29 2011.
