Staying positive – The Smart Export Guarantee and negative electricity prices in GB

  • March 29th - 14:00-15:00
  • Venue: Webinar Insights

As the Feed-in Tariff draws to a close at the end of this month, Government has put forward a “Smart Export Guarantee” (SEG) for households and businesses with on-site renewable generation.

This proposed price floor of zero would supposedly protect prosumers from the risk of negative electricity prices – But how significant a risk is this?

What does the evidence from other jurisdictions tell us?

And how can we ensure that all renewable electricity receives a fair market price?


Join the STA policy team for an in-depth look at the SEG, and what a future of increasingly volatile wholesale power prices could mean for the rooftop solar industry going forward.

Rooftop Solar Roadshow

  • May 1st- May 9th
  • Venue: Bristol - Edinburgh - Manchester - Peterborough

Capturing opportunity in a subsidy-free era


Calling all installers!

The Rooftop Solar Roadshow is a set of half-day seminars aimed at supporting SME installers to navigate and master the new post-subsidy solar landscape in the UK.

The permanent closure of the FiT scheme at the end of March is predicted to impact the residential retrofit sector most but the long-term market opportunity should not be overlooked. While public support for solar is exceptionally high and new technologies are enabling consumers to access additional benefits, 96% of homes in the UK still do not have solar on their roofs.

These educational seminars will commercially upskill installers to leverage drivers such as the uptake of EVs and Local Authority initiatives to unlock new business and help accelerate the smart energy transition. Attendees will also be briefed on how the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), the remaining government policy mechanism the STA helped design, could operate via suppliers and how it could affect consumers.

A workshop by an award winning sales trainer, Q&A sessions and networking opportunities will ensure attendees get the most value out of the seminar.
