Aurora was delighted to host the first German Renewables Summit on Wednesday 12 June in Berlin, where we gathered key decision makers from industry, investors, developers, and regulation to assess the future of renewables in Germany.
Sustained technology cost declines, rising power prices and competition have now allowed the economics of renewables to work without government support, indicated by zero bids and announcements of installations outside the EEG. This challenges today’s investment strategy, financing and commercialisation of wind and solar. During the event we discussed how the regulator can facilitate the transition to merchant renewables and the role of PPAs.
We believe that attendees left with fresh perspectives to inform their own strategy for the post-EEG era. In this focused, half day session, key topics were underlined by original analysis and forecasting by Aurora and perspectives from leading figures in industry, finance and scientific research.
