This paper highlights the economic factors catapulting solar to the forefront of the global energy revolution. Solar investments share many features of other real assets, and boast a number of unique characteristics that make them especially attractive to capital providers. Of course, these assets are not without risks, illustrated by the underperformance of some companies and the occasionally uneven retreat of subsidies. However, these challenges have been exaggerated and solar looks poised to become one of the major investment themes of the next 10 to 20 years.
This guide aims to inform potential investors in solar thermal, its related technologies and the merits of this technology.
This document considers best practice for the management of constraints affecting solar generation sites connected to the Distribution Network Operators (DNO) network at 33kV or higher voltages, and any solar generators that have a dedicated 11kV or 6.6kV circuit back to the primary substation bus bars.
