Half price NFU entry to 2015 Large Scale Solar event

With Permitted Development kicking in this week for giant solar roofs, but the fate of super-large solar farms looking rather doubtful at present, what does the future hold for large solar PV projects? How soon can the industry become subsidy-free? Can the UK maintain its position as one of the world's top five markets for the fast-growing solar power sector?

These questions and more will be up for discussion at the Large-Scale Solar UK conference in Bristol on 29-30 April, organised by Solar Media Ltd, the independent media platform for the solar industry. NFU members (farmers, growers and advisers) can benefit from a 50% promotional discount on conference packages - enter the code NFU50 when registering.

Conference sessions will cover:

* solar farms

* large-scale rooftops

* solar carports and covered car parking

* planning

* grid connections

* energy storage

* community solar

The NFU's Dr Jonathan Scurlock will be speaking in the Thursday session on planning on "Agriculture versus solar farming; a false dilemma", as well as at the pre-conference workshop for planners on Tuesday, on "Solar farms as part of a larger farm management plan".

Large Scale Solar UK takes place at the Thistle hotel, Bristol City Centre (BS1 2EL) on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th April 2015. See the conference website for a number of related side events.
