Event Focus


IIF Energy & Renewables will provide insights into how investors and project developers are gearing up for continued growth in Europe's maturing zero-subsidy renewables market. The flurry of deals coming to market and being financed shows the sector can continue to flourish in a post-subsidy era.

This year's event will explore the optimal deal structures in a zero-subsidy world and how to address the key challenges still facing the market as it weans itself off subsidies. It will shed light on the corporate PPA market and the many ground breaking deals signed in the past months, but also discuss what other strategies and structures investors can adopt to de-risk their merchant energy and renewables projects. And what's the role for lenders in a market where long-term contracts are no longer a guarantee?

Beyond generation, this year's event will also look at the investability of the electricity demand side. It is clear that energy management solutions and efficiency could play a much bigger role in Europe's energy market, but what's needed to unlock investments? Is battery storage an example of a likely success story?

As investors are always looking for the next opportunity, IIF Energy & Renewables will also take a closer look at which countries are expected to see the next big wave of merchant onshore and solar projects; offshore wind projects and the development of projects using nascent technologies such as floating turbines.
