Solar Market Briefing Vietnam

Live Day

April 28, 2021

Vietnam’s Solar Revolution: Coming from <10 MW of installed solar capacity in mid of 2018, Vietnam’s solar deployment massively increased to 4,460 MW in July 2019 and 6,000+ MW by 2020. An unbelievable success story for the new SEA market leader considering that additionally, there are many hundreds of MW of solar projects still under construction or development.

Supply Chain Challenges
during COVID-19

Global Market & Logistics Update 2021

April 26, 2021

The pandemic has led to global lockdowns severely affecting the supply chains of all international industries. Lock downs led to production and therefore supply shortfalls, delayed project completion and finally increased prices for transportation and logistics. In 2021, the top supply chain challenge will continue to be keeping operations on track.

Within that overarching challenge, there are challenges that have occupied supply chain experts for the past several years — it is just that the pandemic has shed new light on them and, in many cases, made them more acute.  

In a roundtable session, decision-makers across the value chain will discuss these challenges and identify innovation and further digitalization potential.

USA Solar & Storage Market

Building Resilience – Project Pipelines & Finance schemes

April 13, 2021

Without a doubt, the US offers one of the greatest potentials to be a solar nation. Nontheless, the market experienced heavy fluctuations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in the first half of 2020. With discounts and 25-year loan terms installers were able to recover. Meanwhile, EPCs are more selective about the projects they choose, favoring large firms. This is largely due to the ITC completion deadline on December 31st, 2023.  What strategies and technologies have the potential to stabilize the solar and storage development in the long run?

Australia

Join us for in-depth market insights, results of a recent installer survey, detailed technology presentations as well as further insightful presentations.

SunRISE in MEna

the Road to 8GW Solar Capacity

March 17, 2021

The MENA region is a glowing example for the success of solar energy. Despite the hardships of 2020, countries like Algeria, Morocco, KSA, Oman launched new tenders for additional solar capacity. According to BNEF, total installed capacity of solar in MENA has further increased in 2020 by 4,3 GW and is expected to amount up to 8,3 GW by 2022. What segments play the most relevant role? What is the current status of the C&I segment? What technologies will be most relevant to transform the oil nations to solar nations?

Mobile Energy Storage

Presenting the SUNSYS Mobile by Socomec

March 16, 2021

Across Europe, decision makers are gradually limiting the use of diesel. Paris announced a ban of diesel cars in 2024, Amsterdam in 2030, Sweden in 2030 as well. This limitation will be effective for both vehicles and temporary power generation. However, temporary electricity production is to date mainly provided by diesel generators due to the lack of viable alternatives – until now.  

 

Overcasted – Germany Between Growth and Regulations

 Assessing the Status and Future of the German Downstream Market

March 04, 2021

Germany is the largest solar market in Europe. The revised EEG 2021 set the target to 100GW by 2030, increasing the share of solar energy in the 65% renewables target. However, the EEG 2021 also offers a great deal of risk to solar growth, particularly to the development of commercial rooftop and industrial installations due to the decreasing capacity threshold falling within the auction scheme. Additionally, the newly required installation of smart meters and remote controls to systems below 30kW adds administrative obstacles to self-consumption. In this live conference we will discuss the prospects of the German market as well as the effects of the EEG 2021 on each segment along the value chain.
