Talk of session: Utility-Scale Solar Power I: Trends in Development, EPC, O&M, Asset Management

Utility-Scale Solar Power I: Trends in Development, EPC, O&M, Asset ManagementWhile administrative hurdles are still a great concern for solar developers, EPCs also face material supply shortages, continuously new products and a shortage of qualified installers. At the same time, the current inflationary environment is creating immense cost pressure at each step. As high systems yields are crucial for the profitable operation of utility-scale power plants, O&Ms and asset managers employ sophisticated digital tools and advanced analytics to optimize the performance of utility-scale solar plants.

This session will discuss:

  • The status of utility-scale solar power in Europe
  • How to address project development challenges
  • The evolution of solar EPC
  • The latest digital solutions in O&M and asset management
