The third edition of Europe’s leading conference “Solar Asset Management Europe 2015” dedicated to the optimization of the operational phase of PV plants took place in Milan on October 20th-21st, 2015 and was attended by more than 250 asset owners and managers,  O&M providers, IPPs, developers, investors, and other technical and financial stakeholders from 21 countries around the world.

Based on a webinar from September 29th, 2015, our Technical Director Gerhard Muetter presented our core topic “Performance Improvements By Advanced Data Analysis”. The focus was on Alternative Energy Solutions’ experience with operating and optimizing assets above 700MWp and presented the results of improvements, as well as figures on the performance of PV plants influenced by suspended O&M works. The presented results based on advanced data analysis made it possible to improve performance by 4-5% of the energy production on already normally operating PV plants.

There was also one example showing that this advantage will be equalized within 6-9 months after a maintenance stop on the PV plants.
