With sites like Abundance and Mosaic (among others) pushing the envelope on financing renewable energy, it was inevitable that someone would come along and realize there is a growing movement of innovation coupling crowdfunding and renewables.
Solarplaza has recently announced they are organizing a conference in London this coming October seeking to bring together the hundreds of renewable energy market players along with platforms like Trillion Fund and Windcentrale. Solarplaza, a global private company based in Rotterdam, has organized 60 events in 20 different countries in recent years.
Founded in 2004 by Edwin Koot, a senior PV expert working in photovoltaic solar, Solarplaza not only organizes international high-level conferences but also arranges exploratory trade missions in both established and emerging markets across the globe.
The Renewable Energy Crowdfunding Conference already has an impressive list of speakers including:
- Bruce David – Abundance
- Gregory Rosen – Mosaic
- Oliver Gajda – European Crowdfunding Network
- Julia Groves – Trillion Fund and UKCFA
- Harm Reitsma – Windcentrale
- and more..
With growing global interest in shifting away from fossil fuels, and the recognition that solar and wind can be cost effective, this gathering couldn’t be more timely.
