But market conditions mean that there are additional hurdles for solar companies who want to secure the necessary investment and finance to drive their projects forwards.
It's off the back of the continued challenges in securing funding for solar projects in Europe that New Solar Today will be hosting the 2nd European Solar Investment and Finance Summit on December 2-3 in Berlin. Full information is available on this link - http://www.newsolartoday.com/eufinance
