After eight years of running the Solar Finance & Investment series in Europe, the USA and Asia. Solar Media Ltd. launched Wind Power Finance & Investment in 2021 – a summit packed full of investors, lenders, developers, utilities and government speakers.

Despite the looming spectre of the Omicron variant, the inaugural Wind Finance & Investment Summit went ahead in December 2021. With almost 250 registrants and over 130 on-site attendees to hear from leaders in the European wind industry, network and win business.

The Summit will return to Europe in December 2022 (and the USA in October) to discuss the biggest issues and opportunities the market will face while scaling up to the level necessary for European Governments’ renewables targets.

Europe’s expertise in technological, scientific, and industrial know-how in this sector is unrivalled. However, many challenges still lie ahead across the supply chain, from manufacturing to shipping and installation.

Renewables continue to be a safe haven for investors with deals staying buoyant in many markets throughout 2021/22. New opportunities are arising for investors to diversify into complimentary technologies including storage, collocated solar PV, green hydrogen and green steel. The sector promises to continue to be attractive for time to come.
