Webinar: Investing in Renewables - Escaping Commoditization

With the global installed renewable energy capacity expected to more than double by 2040, it is certain that renewables will be leading the transition to a sustainable energy system in the future. There has been tremendous growth in the production and adaption of renewables, fostered by the increasing awareness of these new technologies, as well as supporting policy, regulatory and tendering processes around the globe.

To safeguard profitability, investors, project developers, independent power producers and utilities need to understand the increasingly complex market and the grid environment, so they can handle commoditization trends and benefit from emerging opportunities like participation in energy markets or renewables balancing through energy storage. Market outlook data, forecast reports and sophisticated analytics are essential to efficiently assess and weigh the external factors on a global scale, as well as market-specific elements, before and during investing to achieve success.

In this webinar, ABB’s Energy Portfolio Management (EPM) team will explore and discuss the following:

  • Global and regional renewables market challenges
  • Emerging renewables investment challenges and opportunities
  • Leveraging technology solutions to invest and participate in the changing renewables market successfully

Join our team of energy experts and gain valuable insights to grow your renewables business portfolio. At ABB, we offer a comprehensive offering of information, advisory, and software applications to support energy market participants and market operators.
