Investing in solar and battery storage

Investing in solar and battery storage

Friday 6th July 2018 

Energy Systems Catapult
7th Floor, Cannon House
18 Priory Queensway

View Programme         


Although the first subsidy free solar farms are now emerging, there is still a little way to go before true grid parity is reached for solar. However there are circumstances which might exist within local authorities which will make the business case to invest in solar stand up. We will discuss APSE Energy’s Medium Term Strategy and Accelerated Options as highlighted in the publication ’Investing in electricity’. We will also talk about the latest developments in battery storage and how it can be incorporated into a solar development.
