Wind & Solar Seminar: Future Energy Sources

According to the Finnish energy roadmap, the future energy markets will in many scenarios be increasingly based on renewable energy sources. The growing amount of renewables will create, both from the technical and economical points of view, new possibilities and challenges. It is clear that solar and wind power will constitute an important part of the future renewable energy portfolio.

The topics of the conference day start with the issues of future prospects related to new technical solutions and global sustainable development. During the day the selected topics will deal with environmental outlook and technical development & challenges from both solar and wind power perspective. The funding possibilities with Horizon 2020 is also addressed. The seminar provides the updated and necessary information for all players in the fields of energy production, technology, marketing and financing.
