Congress Future of Solar

Why visit?

After years of growth, the Netherlands is the European champion of solar energy. Yet demand for solar panels has weakened since the summer, especially by consumers. Find out what it means for the future of the market during the presentation of the National Solar Trend Report 2024, which includes another forecast for the coming years. Experts from the Netherlands and abroad outline what is needed to continue this growth, and what the Dutch energy system could look like in the future. Agree or disagree? Discuss it with your sector colleagues at Congress Future of Solar, the knowledge and networking event for the top of the solar sector. A whisper interpreter is available for visitors who do not speak Dutch.
