Solar Media has today made the latest issue of Solar Business Focus UK free to download for all Solar Power Portal readers.

The 21st edition of the magazine, aimed at providing the UK’s solar industry with all the latest news, policy updates and market guidance, has been available to subscribers for a fortnight but a free download has been made available for the first time.

As the industry recalibrates following last year’s subsidy reset, there has been increased demand for information on the opportunities still available for the industry. SPP has been covering these within our ‘the UK’s new solar’ topic, however the latest issue of SBFUK delves into these in greater depth.

This issue includes a wealth of information written specifically to give installers, developers, EPCs and financiers – as well as all the UK’s other solar stakeholders – confidence that there is still business for UK companies.

Our cover feature in this edition focuses on how to cater for the significant demand from overseas for British expertise, looking into where the demand is coming from as well as what – and crucially who – you need to know in order to extend your reach.

Other features include an in-depth guide to the nascent Irish market, how utilities and installation firms alike are beginning to offer energy management as a service to clients and an introduction to solar car parks, long thought to be one such area that solar can thrive in despite subsidy uncertainty.

Also included in the magazine are regular features such as our policy update pages, the installer’s gallery and product news, as well as an interview with former energy secretary Ed Davey.

Liam Stoker, editor of Solar Business Focus UK, said: “We thought long and hard about the challenges facing the UK solar market before putting the issue together in the wake of December’s feed-in tariff decision and gained some great insight from the stakeholders we interviewed and our guest authors. Hopefully all within the industry can take something from the issue and benefit from it in the coming months.”
