Against a backdrop of falling PPA prices, and longer returns on investment, the debate over reducing operation and maintenance (O&M) expenditure versus optimizing PV plant performance, is increasingly being steered towards cost. While expenses like labor and tools are not getting any cheaper, digital technologies – helping to make PV plants more intelligent, efficient and […]
Following a series of pilot projects with large battery storage systems, Kaco New Energy has launched a new battery inverter for commercial and industrial facilities, called ‘blueplanet gridsave 50.0 TL3-S’. The first new devices have already shipped to Korean partners, and will shortly be online. The device has special features, that makes it unique, in […]
More and more solar modules and inverters are designed for 1,500 volts. Is this approach becoming a pan-European trend? The opportunities for commercial rooftop and outdoor solar installations presented by this technology will be discussed in a forthcoming pv magazine webinar, hosted in partnership with Trina Solar. The increase of the module system voltage from […]
Are conventional monitoring methods for solar plants actually substandard? Or do solutions providers simply make such claims as a marketing tactic? In pv magazine’s upcoming webinar, you will have the chance to form your own opinion. Optimizing troubleshooting and related issues will be up for discussion in this pv magazine webinar. pv magazine editors will report on the troubleshooting series in […]
Description: The pressure on owners and operators of large PV projects to enhance the output and to reduce the cost of operations and maintenance has never been greater. Our first of three free webinars with global weather measurement and resource assessment provider Vaisala will give you practical ideas for improving asset management of existing plants, […]
Description: Successful local developers of utility scale projects and well-known international developers inevitably follow the same procedures to build a new plant. The guidelines for early stage utility-scale project development that set up project developers for success are the topic of our second webinar with initiative partner Vaisala. We aim for a better understanding of […]
The uncertainty of solar performance is a constant source for snide remarks by opponents of renewable energy. But it is also a fact that hounds developers of utility scale PV projects, and especially in the pre-construction period when financing is being secured it is necessary to reduce project uncertainty. What are the steps a developer […]
