Learn how to tap into the Balkan region's buzzing solar potential

Grid Balancing & Batteries | Financing and PPAs | Permitting & Policy

Join us in Sofia on November 30th to unlock the boundless potential of Balkans solar! With 2 GW of installed PV capacity and a market potential of over 30 GW, the Balkans region has a huge appeal. Investors are ready to back developers, motivated to tap into the market potential driven by growing demand, EU membership perspective, and decreasing costs of Solar PV. Businesses are also increasingly turning towards C&I solar, facilitated by an emerging PPA framework. Residential prosumers, too, are increasingly installing systems to achieve energy autonomy. Nevertheless, a challenging regulatory framework, lengthy permitting processes, and inadequate grid infrastructure pose challenging complexities.

These opportunities and challenges will be central topics at Solarplaza Summit Balkans, where regional and international developers, investors, utilities, policymakers, asset owners, and manufacturers will meet. We invite you to gather in Bulgaria, immerse yourselves in game-changing solutions, forge connections, and be part of the Balkans solar movement!
