Before joining the STA, Aleksandra completed an MSc in Energy, Trade and Finance at Cass Business School in London. Her research there on the application of market-based, off-grid Solar PV in refugee camps earned her a UK graduate start-up scheme. Prior to her studies, she produced market intelligence reports focused mainly on energy commodities, renewables and pharmaceuticals in seven countries across South East Asia, Northern Europe and the Middle East.
Business Development Manager, STA
The proliferation of renewable electricity generation is driving energy transition pathways in the power and transport sectors, with industry set to be the next frontier. Solar PV is leading global power investment due primarily to dramatic cost reductions, but increasingly solar’s synergies with other low carbon technologies such as wind, battery storage and electric vehicles will support deeper decarbonisation.
Aleksandra will provide an overview of the roller coaster set of policies the UK solar sector has grappled with to deliver 13GW—Europe’s third largest market. Along with a discussion on feasible solar project structures, Aleksandra will cover key panel performance characteristics, the technological advances on the horizon and how solar panels might be applied in the field of glass manufacturing.
