With a dramatic fall in costs and improvement of efficiency in recent years, solar power now seems set to become one of the world’s leading energy sources. In certain parts of the world it will dominate.

Though that may seem far off still, it is already clear that the Philippines will play host to a very active solar market. With its abundant sunshine and favourable market conditions, it has already taken off in a big way.

Taking place on 18 – 19 May 2016 in Manila, The Solar Show Philippines 2016 is designed to unite the entire solar industry from across the Philippines and beyond to share ideas and experiences. This is a unique opportunities to benchmark your experiences and discover more about the challenges and opportunities your competitors are experiencing.
