UK Solar Summit

Since the inaugural UK Solar Summit took place in September 2022, UK solar has gone from strength to strength with deployment reaching over 1GW in 2022. New ground-mount solar sites are being announced daily with sizes ranging from the smallest individual landowners through to “mega-solar” sites of 100s of MW. On the commercial rooftop side we
are seeing businesses looking to solar as a way to gain control in light of rapidly increasing energy costs.

This Summit will look at the role solar currently plays in the energy mix, how this will change over the coming years and how this aligns with net-zero and other government targets.

The UK Solar Summit brings together stakeholders from across the value chain as a valuable opportunity to share knowledge and make new business connections to keep driving the sector forward. The Summit will help businesses and individuals’ identify the market drivers and dynamics that will provide opportunities over the coming years. Expert speakers will share their knowledge on how to bring projects through from the earliest stages of planning through to technology decisions and ultimately asset management.

The UK Solar Summit is your annual update on all things solar in the UK and how your business can benefit from the opportunities available.
