Solar & Energy market integration With the solar industry in the Netherlands becoming more mature, PV systems get more embedded in the existing power system and their output becomes of significance in the energy market . New challenges arise on grid connection, curtailment, regulatory requirements, integration, kWh-price, (future) business models In our presentation we will highlight:

Outlook for Solar globally towards 2050
  • Cost of solar PV will continue to decrease. Yet what will happen to the business case of solar PV when future electricity prices suffer from price drops at moments of high renewable production?
  • With solar PV approaching grid parity, governments (across Europe) are phasing out subsidies for such projects. Hence these projects will be fully exposed to the merchant risk of the open market.
  • In NL, SDE will be phased out. How could or should the solar industry prepare? Integrate in the energy market, by:Power Purchase AgreementsAncillary services as solar + storage?
  • Or find alternative business models in the combination with other SDE+(+) technologies
