The leading international gathering for large-scale solar project development in Italy

Permitting & Policy | Financing | Storage | Repowering

With strong regulatory support and centralized permitting schemes (PAS & VIA) put in place, Italy is chasing the ambitious targets of reaching 52 GW of solar PV capacity by 2030, and an overall 55% share for renewables in national power generation. Currently, a major challenge is to understand whether the huge pipeline of projects under development will be able to be constructed and delivered on time, as they're threatened by limitations in the specialized technical workforce and uncertain scenarios related to CapEx costs. At the Solarplaza Summit Italy in Rome, we will cover how these obstacles can be overcome, and we'll dive into the latest industry trends, further expected government support measures, and the latest technological innovations.

The 7th edition of the Solarplaza Summit Italy will gather key influential global and local players and offer market insights from inspirational speakers, combined with extended networking opportunities. Join us on 13 July in Rome and gain actionable insights into topics such as energy storage applications for large-scale solar panel plants, the repowering & revamping of dated assets, and the evolution of project financing, and its adaptation to the latest market trends.
