More than ever before, cities and local governments (rather than central governments) are driving renewable installations in the USA. We are seeing ambitious targets this year, especially in New York State for solar PV and storage.The US market for solar and storage is growing, with 55.9 gigawatts current installed, and around 26 gigawatts in development. Much of the existing solar has been installed in California (around 22 GW). Solar & Storage Finance USA is the only event which looks at raising capital for solar, storage and collocated solar and storage projects in the USA. The conference aims to help delegates understand how debt providers are evolving propositions for storage and how they can access projects for standalone and co-located projects. Meet debt providers, funders, utilities, corporate off takers and blue chip energy firms with capital to invest.
