2025 promises to be an eventful year for the US solar and storage sectors. The 2024 presidential election could lead to policy changes and adjustments to the IRA which have the potential to impact the growth of renewables in the US. Guidance on the IRA tax credit rules is expected to lead to increased investment in the sector, as capacity announcements begin to come to fruition and new projects go ahead.

Wood Mackenzie’s 18th annual Solar & Energy Storage Summit will bring together 400+ senior leaders from US solar and storage developers, utilities, IPPs, offtakers, RTOs/ISOs, and state and federal government. Develop relationships with decision makers in technology, finance, operations, development, engineering, origination, and procurement.
