  • Evolution of the European energy markets. Spring 2023
  • Update of the regulation of the Spanish energy sector and perspectives of the EU electricity market reform
  • Financing of renewable energy projects
  • The importance of PPA and self‑consumption
  • Portfolio valuation: main considerations to take into account

For the third consecutive year, speakers from EY will once again participate in the webinar of March, in which prospects for European energy markets are analysed with a view to spring.

EY is one of the “Big Four” and, therefore, one of the world leaders in consulting, financial advice and model auditing. EY has participated in hundreds of transactions of renewable energy projects in recent years, so it will be a great opportunity to learn about the current situation of the financing of renewable energy projects, PPA and investments in self‑consumption. Novelties in the regulation of the energy sector will also be analysed, at a time when important changes are being considered and carried out in this area.
