QOS Energy will be speaking @Solar Power Summit | 6-7 March 2019
27 February 2019
Marie Bartle, Pre-sales Engineer at QOS Energy, will be a panelist at the Solar Power Summit 2019 organised by Solar Power Europe for the conference about the Latest Trends & Innovations in solar Operations & Maintenance.
Innovations in O&M services are anticipated to reduce the levelized cost of electricity by 0.8% to 1.4% between 2015 and 2030. The savings are dominated by improvements in OPEX and power plant availability and hence by net Annual energy production. In this session, we will discuss what are the latest trends and most innovative solutions in the field of solar Operations & Maintenance, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive algorithms, IoT, drones, cleaning robots or anti-soiling and anti-reflective coatings and how O&M contractors are increasingly relying on them to improve performance and to keep up with market requirements.
Marie will share the latest findings and best practices about operations and maintenance for hybrid plants, solar PV plants and battery monitoring solutions. She will also discuss the latest innovations and trends for solar operation and maintenance performance.
