About

EU GCC Clean Energy Technology Network is organising two webinars on the topic “Scaling-Up Solar PV Roof Top”. The first webinar, which is organised with the support of MESIA, is entitled “Market trends, regulations and business models to promote Solar PV Roof Top projects” and will take place on Wednesday 13 May 2020 at 10.00 CET 

The shift toward clean, reliable, affordable electricity in the world is most visible in the rapid proliferation of solar panels mounted on the roofs of homes and businesses. Individuals and businesses have been attracted not just to the environmental benefits of solar power, but also to the ability to generate their own power and to the fixed and competitive price of electricity that these systems provide.

Rooftop solar is increasingly cost-effective for homeowners, business owners, and their communities. Reductions in technology prices, innovative financing, and growing networks of solar installers and financial partners all helped drive down the prices for PV Rooftop systems. On the other hand, because rooftop solar can be installed in cities and towns, as opposed to remote locations, it offers job possibilities for local engineers and technicians.

The webinar will debate will debate the key challenges and opportunities in PV rooftop segment in policies, technology advancement and investors perspective in commercial, industrial and residential space. It also aims to discuss Solar PV Roof top options suitable for the region, exchange relevant EU and GCC best practices and lesson learned as well as opportunities for EU GCC partnerships.
