"Digitalization of the PV Operations and Processes"
Digitization is a trend that can have a major impact on every industry in every region. Its direct benefits include reduced costs, increased revenue .. Read more and growth. With the energy industry undergoing a fundamental transformation, digitization could be key to greater productivity, efficiency and flexibility. We are now transitioning from a centrally organized world of power generation into a system of diverse and distributed generators.The event is set to cover all aspects of big data and its impact on the solar sector as well as identifying issues and challenges and providing potential solutions. It’s a great opportunity for industry professionals to come together to exchange the ideas, explore new thinking and help shape the development of the industry. The sessions are set up to be interactive for the attendees to get involved in the experience-sharing process and to tackle existing problems in real-time discussions.

Highlights

  • Predictive Maintenance For Photovoltaic Inverters Using Data Analytics and AI
  • Solar Data Analytics to uncover Performance Losses, Reduce Maintenance and Increase yield
  • Digitalizing Operations in PV Plants
