DuPont is to host an exclusive event in Rome, Italy, on 11th October 2017 to discuss risk mitigation strategies for solar asset performance.
The event will feature key decision-makers employed by power producers, Engineering, Procurement & Construction firms (EPC), and investors in solar energy. It will shed a spotlight on the crucial role of materials in realising system owners’ financial returns and will also provide an overview of new PV business opportunities in Italy, focusing on the trend of regulatory development aimed at allowing PV to be part of the energy market.
Distinguished speakers from both the public and private sectors, including EF Solare Italia, Moroni & Partners, Studio Legale Macchi di Cellere Gangemi, Finergy and TÜV Rheinland, will discuss how reliability, efficiency and bankability can help improve the long-term technical reliability and financial stability of future PV assets.
“As a world leader in the manufacturing of specialty PV materials, DuPont plays a substantial role in helping to promote reliable and durable solar energy across the entire value chain” said Dr. Stephan Padlewski, regional marketing leader, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, Europe, Middle East & Africa. “With solar energy being installed in more and more markets around the world, the quality of each and every component must be unwavering to help ensure investment stability.”
Photovoltaic (PV) is quickly becoming the lowest-cost power source in many regions and has evolved in just one decade from being niche to becoming a central building block in energy transition. Italy’s National Energy Strategy has identified PV as one of the best options for increasing the share of renewable energy in the country.
With intensified pressure on costs across the whole value chain, economies of scale, and innovation to keep improving power output, the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) will continue to decline. This calls for appropriate risk mitigation strategies to match established standards in the wider energy utilities industry.
