Webinar - Solar cannibalization in Spain and other market parity countries


22 Jan. 2019 by

With the advent of solar market parity projects in Spain, the impact of the so-called "cannibalization effect" starts taking a bigger role as more renewables are added into the system.


 

Multiple studies have shown that an increased renewable penetration tends to decrease wholesale power prices. In some cases, such as in Germany, these prices have even dropped below zero. What to make of this?

Topics discussed in this webinar:

  • What is cannibalization and why does it matter?
  • Why is solar energy more vulnerable than other technologies?
  • How can solar still thrive in a cannibalised environment?
  • The impact for investors in their subsidy-free assets.
  • Prospects for solar cannibalisation in Spain with the expected growth of solar.
  • What does this mean for developers looking for PPAs or merchant plants?
  • Outlook for Spanish prices and financing opportunities.
