Large-scale solar power generation is a vital element to meeting U.S. renewable energy portfolio standards. Industry experts need to exchange insights, experience, challenges and best practices to construct efficient PV Power Plants that will satisfy the demands of the utilities and investors. Only developers who implement high performance, cost effective and bankable products will be at the forefront of the market.

The 4th PV Power Plants conference will host an array of high-level industry players who have lined up to create a great program.

Come speak with industry experts like Ray Hudson of BEW Engineering who will discuss utility-interactive controls, therein providing insight about the utility’s needs and the development of standards. SunEdison’s Jason Hooper will chair a session on project life-cycle performance and operations and maintenance optimization.

The financial industry also demands precision asset management so site-wide and granular data monitoring analysis continues to be an important aspect. This topic will be covered by Casey Miller (Envect) through a panel discussion shedding light on questions such as: How to maximize the use of data and what level of granularity is ideal – panel, string or inverter level?

In addition to the U.S. market, emerging opportunities and trends  in Latin America will be under scrutiny at the conference. Charles Thurston, U.S. correspondent of pv magazine, will host the session, “Going  South: New market opportunities”.

Additional hot topics include:

  • Solar as an asset class
  • Smart Grid and the role of PV
  • LCOE Contribution of Different System Components: analyzing financial leverage
  • Plant Operation: real lessons and best practices
