Leading investors and project developers to meet and discuss the future of solar investment opportunities.

January 2012) Rome – The recent Solar Millennium closure is just the latest in a number of high profile bankruptcies throughout the solar industry. Coupled with the reduction of feed in tariffs across Europe and the continuing uncertain economic conditions, one could have expected solar to not be a particularly good area for investment. The truth however is that solar is maturing fast and the closures are to be expected as part of a Darwinian consolidation process where only the best run companies survive, as module prices have decreased by 70% over the past 2 years. This has been good for projects and project developers and the FIT’s are being reduced as a result and to avoid unnecessary supernormal profits.

2012 looks set to see many more plants come on to the market and investment in solar power assets is due to increase from the $86bn invested in 2010 to over $150bn by 2020.

Institutional investors and financial asset owners, looking for stable form of investment for their portfolios, are increasingly looking to the solar industry to provide the long terms return they need. With market attention focused again on dividend investing, renewable and infrastructure assets find themselves in the spotlight. Solar assets’ uncorrelated performance provides pension funds and insurance companies with the much sought after means to diversify portfolio risk as well as generate compounded income.

April will see institutional investors, financial asset owners and project developers convene in Italy to discuss the latest financial trends and conditions. The meeting will, among others, discuss the risks posed by the solar industry, the future of government economic support and the key upcoming solar markets for future investment opportunities. Executives from Next Energy Captial, GIFI, Foresight Group, Santander, Impax New Energy Investors, Gestamp Solar, Bloomberg, Wise Energy and dozens more are planning to attend and speak.

“By gathering key decision makers from major investors and project developers alike, we look forward to a lively discussion” said Sarah Ross, Director of Solar Infrastructure Investment “As more investors look towards the solar industry, this conference will assess and identify opportunities for uncorrelated, income generating returns from the renewable infrastructure sector.”
