VIP finance lunch

DP20150310_0476Auctions for Renewable Energy in the European Union
Thursday 29 September 2016, 12:00 – 14:30
Location: Sidney room (Radisson Blu Hotel Hamburg), adjacent to the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg


Tenders are promoted under the current European Commission’s State Aid Guidelines as market-oriented solutions for the allocation of renewables support. Member States have a strong incentive to adopt the auction model to deliver their 2030 renewable energy objectives. This represents a major trend towards the alignment of renewables support systems throughout Europe in the context of the Single European Electricity market.

Hosted by ING Wholesale Banking Germany, the VIP finance lunch is an excellent opportunity to network and exchange best practices with high-level stakeholders in the wind sector. In this session, European experts from the main companies behind Europe’s wind energy deployment will exchange views and lessons on key auction design elements, market impacts and long-term implications on investors and lenders.

  • What are the price effects seen in the early adaptor markets?
  • What impacts will there be across the wind energy supply chain, competition and number of projects going forward?
  • Cross-national renewables tenders: Implications on a European scale and the future of wind energy deployment and regional cooperation

Join finance and industry experts at an exclusive (on-invite only) seated lunch, and share your opinion with the key leaders of the industry during and after a panel session chaired by Darius Snieckus, Editor-in-Chief, Recharge.
