Masterclass: Solar Asset Management

Masterclass: Solar Asset Management

The total solar power installed capacity in India has now crossed 20 GW Milestone. As more investment is pouring into the solar energy sector now then never before it is important to understand the intricate details of the extremely dynamic, volatile and vulnerable solar projects. It is crucial and important for entire chain to understand the importance of operations, maintenance & monitoring and take corrective measures to improve the efficiency of the projects.

Operation and Maintenance is one of the most critical requirements of successful and profitably operating solar power projects. Good O&M practices have an impact on both technical and financial performance of the projects while improving the life of the project. Given the increasing cost of electricity and equity, it is important to extract maximum value from the installed solar power projects to yield maximum financial returns for the investors. Increased focus on good quality O&M of installed projects also reduces the occurrence of project breakdown and hence prevent potential losses to the investors. For energy sources such as solar where there are no fuel costs, operation and maintenance helps improve the efficiency of power generation thus bringing down the cost per unit of electricity generated. With an ever improving technology and better IT practices in the industry, it is important to keep updated with the latest practices of operating and maintaining solar farms and projects is the country

India’s premier Masterclass on Solar O&M:Utility & Rooftop will have an array of insightful discussions providing the ideal platform to meet valuable contacts and achieve great business. This masterclass is designed to specifically focus on the key technical, operational and IT related issues of managing solar energy projects in the country.
