PHOTON Solar Electric Utility Conference: Opportunitiesand Challenges for Large-Scale Solar

(PresseBox) ( Aachen, )
In Europe, utilityscale solar power plants are on the upswing. Every big solar player is moving into the lucrative solar project business and the number of utilities starting solar power plant activities is expanding quickly as well. Almost every day, there are announcements about new solar multimegawatt systems - in Germany or Italy, in France or the Czech Republic.

PHOTON's 4th Solar Electric Utility Conference will examine solar's impact on the traditional powergeneration sector - including business opportunities to develop new revenue streams, technological challenges in integrating solar systems for both solar and utility companies, and economic challenges from displaced revenue, profits and possible negative network effects for utility companies. Presentations will be given on:

- Solar sector growth and cost estimates through 2012, and implications for solar and traditional electricity players
- Utility activities of solar companies
- Solar activities of utilities and project developers
- Technical and economic challenges
- Executive panel discussion
