The 3rd edition of the RE-Source Southeast conference – the largest regional event dedicated to corporate renewable energy sourcing and its role in the industry decarbonisation strategies – took place in Sofia on 18 and 19 of May 2023. This year’s conference featured more than 50 speakers sharing their expertise in various aspects of corporate sourcing and the event was attended by over 380 participants from Europe, Asia and America.
The forum once again brought together leading representatives from different areas in the renewable energy sector – OEMs, distributors, developers, EPC and O&M companies. Key European traders discussed what pricing and hedging strategies can be applied to long-term agreements (PPAs), while leading financial institutions outlined the current dynamics of sustainable financing for renewable energy projects and what PPAs can become bankable for both renewable energy producers and contracting companies.
Transmission and distribution grid operators, storage system integrators, and technology providers discussed the evolution of energy storage, smart grids, virtual power plants, and long-duration energy storage technologies and their applications to solve the grid flexibility challenge.
Leading companies gave vivid examples of their decarbonisation pathways and what it takes to realise a net zero strategy in the South East.
