Rooftop and Distributed Solar PV Summit 2023
September 28, 2023 • Bucharest
Rooftop & Distributed Solar PV Summit 2023 will bring together solar PV project developers, distribution companies, installers, storage system integrators, together with beneficiaries such as Commercial and Industrial customers, public institutions, financing institutions and other industry players to examine the opportunities, business cases and technologies in developing distributed solar.
Join us on September 28, 2023 in Bucharest to find the opportunities for business ventures in the booming small-scale distributed solar market segment.
The Rooftop & Distributed Solar Summit 2023 is the only event that brings together small and distributed solar energy solution providers with potential clients.
Join us to see how the adoption of distributed energy resources is transforming the traditional centralized electricity generation and distribution model into a more flexible, resilient, and sustainable system. By spreading energy generation across many small-scale sources, distributed energy can improve the overall efficiency, reliability, and security of the electricity grid, as well as reduce the carbon footprint.
The rise of distributed energy also presents new business opportunities, regulatory challenges, and operational issues that need to be understood and addressed.
The Rooftop & Distributed Solar Summit 2023 offers many avenues of education to understand these new business models.
Some of the discussion topics include:
Drivers & challenges for rooftop solar PV in Romania
Tips for PV self-consumption with and without surpluses
Regulations and legislations on self-consumption
Technical solutions for solar self-consumption
Business models for prosumers
Rooftop Solar PV for Commercial, Industrial and Public Sector Buildings
Make sure to book a place!
