Meeting Today’s Key Challenges Facing Solar Developers

Infocast Solar Power Finance & Investment Summit 2020

07 Oct 2020 12:00 p.m. - 12:55 p.m.

Morrison & Foerster is sponsoring Infocast Solar, the top networking event for leaders in the solar industry. During this virtual event, experts in the solar industry will present their upcoming strategic opportunities, and discuss insights into the latest on solar and solar + storage development and financing.

Partner Julia Balas will be giving the opening remarks for the Summit and moderating the panel “Meeting Today’s Key Challenges Facing Solar Developers,” which will explore the promising trends driving solar development opportunities—such as a wave of climate and renewable legislation passed by state legislatures, growing corporate demand, and increasing utility support—while also exploring the challenges that are also facing the development community, specifically those arising from the recession caused by COVID-19. During this kick-off session, leading developers will share their perspectives on how to deal with the following key challenges facing the industry:

  • What impact is the COVID-19 pandemic and the recession having on the industry and what’s the expectation for how long will it take to recover from this impact?
  • The highly aggressive pricing environment
  • The shift of more risk to developers/owners and the growing concern about the sustainability in the market
  • The uncertainty surrounding tariffs and trade policy
  • Project Risks – what can really be built by end of 2023?
