Solar Power Generation USA Congress

February 4 & 5, 2015 - San Diego, California, USA

Attending Solar Power Generation USA congress 2015 will give you a real perspective of how to capture the BIG money-making opportunities, taking a fresh look at the pressures on the US solar developers.

Gone are the days of traditional utility scale solar. With the big project pipelines drying up, the pressure is on developers to make solar viable for the foreseeable future. Developers need to rev up portfolios to see continued returns and sustainable growth in the industry moving forward.

This isn’t going to be easy. Projects are scaling down and prices are going up, thriving in the US market depends on the tenacity to capture the new market opportunities. As if this isn’t enough, PPA prices are at an all-time low making margins razor thin with little room for movement.

Join strategic discussion giving you expert insight into:

  • Increasing revenue by diversifying your portfolio: Capturing the C&I market
  • How to flip a project: Know what to look for when buying or selling an asset
  • Building your project pipeline in new solar states
  • Maximize margins by optimizing operations of your portfolio

In addition to focused strategic discussion, find out real applications around the industry buzz:

  • The economics of integrating solar-storage hybrids
  • Long-term sustainability of yieldcos
  • Will an industry-wide set of standards ever truly happen?
