The idea behind the creation of the GE Economic Forum, was an event with speakers with topics supporting decision making on solar systems.

Solar systems should last for years. The investment decision should therefore be considering prevailing macro-economic factors and other tendencies in the world.

The purpose of the GE Economic Forum is a broad insight with a prioritisation on macro or green economy, sustainability, ecology and other areas of interest to business leaders which directly or indirectly can support investment decisions on solar.

The forum itself is a platform for knowledge exchange, networking, to learn and to inspire.

The annual event first took place in Tata in 2016 and has so far been held in the September-October.

The event is invitation-only for our business partners and selected invitees.

Speakers can be proposed by any partners or contacts. Final selection is done by Gershoj Energia.

The 2018 event is scheduled for Sept 27.
