BPVA conference 2014 begins

We're at the BPVA conference this morning. Not a good start when disgraced ex-minister and unrepentant jailbird Chris Huhne stood up to speak.

Things got better when Juliet Davenport, CEO of Good Energy took the stand. She shares our view that we need to lose the word 'green'. What we supply for our customers isn't green energy; its just energy. The model for delivering it is very different to the established grid system but it will power your PC just the same.

The general thrust of today's speakers is just how mainstream PV solar is going and just how disruptive it has become to the established energy industry.  

Lots of big commercial property players here with a mindset that they need to start using their roofspace more efficiently. Great news.
