22 USA
states represented

For seven years, Solar & Storage Finance USA has brought solar and storage projects together with capital in New York. One of the hottest states for new solar and storage projects, New York has a 6 gigawatt (GW) solar target and a 1.5 GW storage target by 2025. 2 GW of solar was installed by the end of 2019, the pipeline continues to grow, and policy indicates a firm commitment to 100% renewables, not to mention being the capital of global finance! New York City is the place to be this November for anyone serious about developing or providing capital for American solar and storage projects.

This is not just a New York event; 350+ attendees travel from across the USA representing debt, equity, investment, sponsors and utilities at the highest level: 76% of attendees were CEO/Director level, making this a fantastic forum for deal-making and networking.

 

The 8th Edition of Solar & Storage Finance is ideally placed to enable:

  • Attendees to win new business in the light of new policy advancements such as Virginia’s recent 100% clean energy bill.
  • Deal-making with developers and funders specifically interested in utility scale projects, larger portfolios of distributed ground mount and rooftop assets, collocated solar+storage projects, community solar and floating solar.
  • Discussion of the 2020 Presidential Election results and the impact on the solar and storage industries.
  • New partnerships and insight into how business models are emerging between developers, utilities, C&I off-takers and project funders.
  • Attendees to harness changing deal structures, meet new funds to the market and find out what to expect of the finance and investment community in 2021.
  • A realistic understanding of increased yield from bifacial panels, trackers and batteries and the latest research on degradation of bifacial panels, safety of batteries and their bankability.
  • High-level networking with decision makers from across the USA at the specific state-by-state round table discussion groups.
  • A solid understanding of how to make money out of projects with an extended discussion around revenue streams, how to stack them and what to do to make money out of storage.
  • A personalized agenda which you can build across breakout streams, attending only those sessions which will move your business forward.
  • Insight into the ITC, tax equity and how companies are preparing for an era of unsubsidized projects – hear lessons from key European markets which have already approached this such as the UK.
