The STA’s recent report Leading Lights identifies the best local authority leadership on solar from all over the country. We’re delighted to be joined at Solar & Storage Live by the UK’s leading local authorities on solar farms, new build standards and collective domestic purchase schemes. Hear how and why they are making such a success of solar. Understand their needs and the opportunities they are creating for the industry. While central government stepped back from supporting solar, explore how local leaders everywhere are stepping forward to light the way.
