4th Smart Grids & Cleanpower Conference

Future growth for solar PV in the UK by Alan South

Alan South, Commercial Director of the Award Winning UK company Solar Century plc, a veteran of the Cleantech Conference Series organised by CIR Strategy, will deliver a talk summarising the changes that have occurred recently in the UK solar market.

PV generation capacity installed in the UK has grown beyond all expectations in the last two years. A consequence of the extraordinary growth has been fast and deep cuts to the support scheme. Just where does the UK stand in comparison with other countries and what will the future look like for the technology?

Alan’s talk at this year’s Smart Grids and Cleanpower Conference on 14 June at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, will describe how massive, unsubsidised growth in solar installations has occurred in Spain and now in Holland as this phenomenon moves northwards to the UK. He will discuss what happens when you reach and surpass grid parity, solar markets.

Alan will attempt to describe the dynamics and timings of this process in a way that will be of interest to cleantech investors and innovators as well as other market experts and academics.
