Help Shape France's Future Energy Roadmap

New Regulations | Developers' Obstacles & Solutions | Finance & PPAs

Simultaneous translation will be available throughout the conference

On January 10th, the French Government enacted new regulations under the ‘Renewable Energy Acceleration Act’, in a strong effort to drag the French sustainable energy transition out of its slump. Long and complex permitting procedures slowed RE capacity build-out down in recent years. Now, France seeks to close the gap on its Multiannual Energy Plan's objective - which states a target of 40GW of installed PV capacity by 2028 and 100GW by 2050. Under the new law, the development prospects for solar are broadened by, for example, providing a framework for agrivoltaics and simplifying the permitting of solar installations near public infrastructure.

Addressing project development obstacles and industry concerns - including grid capacity issues - whilst highlighting the many opportunities and large potential - like novel financing options and the proliferation of PPAs - will be at the core of the Solarplaza Summit France on June 29th in Paris. To find a way out of this crisis, the entire solar ecosystem must find a way to work together: from public authorities to developers, investors, off-takers, and manufacturers. At this key event, you will learn from industry thought leaders, influential investors, PPAs experts, grid operators, and other pioneers that are shaping France’s future energy roadmap.
