Celebrating clean energy at Solar & Storage Live

  • Posted: 26 Nov 2021

We joined the 150+ exhibitors from across the solar, storage & EV industries to showcase how we’re helping to power a clean energy system.

This week we attended our first trade show in two years, and we’re pleased to say that it did not disappoint.

Arriving for the three-day exhibition at the NEC, it was brilliant to feel the buzz of live events again and see so many like-minded businesses together in the same room, sharing their insights and celebrating some of the technologies at the forefront of the clean energy transition.

Alongside the exhibition stands, Solar & Storage Live had a full agenda of talks in one of its three on-site theatres. We were pleased to host a discussion on ESG & responsible finance in the Commercial and Industrial theatre, with our MD Matthew Clayton as the moderator and joined by Thrive’s Investment Director, Monika Paplaczyk, as well as Chloe Hood, Project Developer and Community Liaison Manager at Aura Power, and Simon Nicholls, Managing Director of Olympus Power.

We discussed the different funding models available to developers when building new solar and storage projects in the UK, and how we have worked with both Aura and Olympus to add new capacity to the grid over the last 18 months.

“As soon as we arrived at the show, you could feel the excitement in the room – it was brilliant to see lots of friendly faces and discuss all the interesting projects being developed in the solar and storage markets." - Monika Paplaczyk, Investment Director, Thrive Renewables

Thanks to everyone that came and saw us at our stand or attended our panel session on responsible finance. We hope to see you again next year!
