How much more bankable are smart trackers compared to standard single-axis trackers? A question faced by project developers considering going for a tracker for their next project.
When installing a single-axis tracker at a solar project, developers first look at various bankability criteria, such as performance, reliability, installation, and O&M.
Taking performance as an example, usually, trackers tilt following a date and time configuration that matches the longitude and latitude of the location of the array. However, this type of setup cannot account for diffuse light, albedo, bifaciality, or uneven terrain. This is where smart tracking technologies come into play and boost yield by considering all these additional factors.
In this pv magazine Webinar, Rob Foree, project manager at the solar developer Black & Veatch will discuss how the company performs bankability reviews for single-axis tracker projects, which tests his team runs, and how PVsyst comes into play. Foree will share with us the company’s experience using smart trackers.
Sun Kai, TrinaTracker’s Head of smart tracking technology, will join us at the webinar. From him, we will hear in greater detail how smart trackers stand out and what they are capable of. Also, Kai will show us a case study to demonstrate the technical advantages of smart tracking. The CEO of TrinaTracker EMEA Division, Juan Manuel Gómez, will be available for a Q&A afterward.
