Keynote Panel

The outlook for solar and storage remains strong for the decade ahead, as an additional 358 GW of solar and 111 GW of battery storage capacity is forecasted to be deployed by 2030. Spurring this clean energy boom will be the billions (if not trillions) in private sector investment attracted to the US clean energy market by the IRA's $369 billon dollar package.

This session takes a magnifying glass to the outlook of capital for solar and storage ahead:

  • What emerging states are investors entering or increasing investment exposure in for solar and storage?
  • What technologies have now been sufficiently de-risked and are ready to be backed at scale?
  • What asset classes do investors have the most appetite for going forward?
  • What are the headwinds ahead to have on the radar heading into 2024?


The session will also showcase polling results taken across the event on the opportunities for solar and storage ahead.
