A closer look at integrated generation and demand co-location business models
Looking at future growth scenarios for storage and then concentrating on what we see as the next wave business case for energy storage co-located with stand-alone generation, Commercial & Industrial demand and also both (i.e. behind the meter generation + demand). This would draw on work for WPD which will be published in August and a paper we are writing to be published at end of October – in partnership with Vattenfall, Triodos, Green Hedge and TLT.
Interactive discussion with slides, followed by audience debate.
There is increasing disquiet in the solar industry about cold calls to domestic owners of solar PV installations, wrongly telling them their solar installer has gone out of business, their inverter is out of warranty and they could lose Feed in Tariff payments. The callers sometimes pose as the manufacturer of the equipment which they say will increase energy yield by ‘up to 25%’. This panel will ask whether this is something that the industry should address, and look at what could be done to protect consumers and the reputation of the industry.
What’s been uncovered and what’s happening?
What’s the real likely lifespan of your inverters and what difference would exchanging them really make?
