Agenda:


PwC states in its Renewables Deals Report that it foresees significant deal flow in 2012 “leading to more consolidated renewable energy industries.” This is evident from figures in the report that show that the “total value of deals for solar assets in the region more than doubled from $2.5bn in 2010 to $5.2bn in 2011.” There are several push factors: falling module prices and a shortage of financing sources are leading the industry to look toward consolidation for solutions. According to North American Clean Energy, these solutions can manifest themselves as: better economies of scale, greater geographic diversification and more efficient technology acquisition.

In this meeting, we examine what M&A activity will mean for the future of the industry and discuss ways of identifying and hedging against risks.

  • How is M&A activity creating more robust and competitive solar companies and technologies?
  • Does it encourage larger scaled projects as opposed to DG projects?
  • How can companies identify and abate the major risks?
  • What types of deals are most prevalent and why?
  • Comparison of European and US deals.
