Asset Operations in Australia: How To Monitor and Steer Solar Plant Performance with:

  • Beatriz Toribio Lopez, Blueshore
  • David Dixon, Rystad Energy
  • Ioannis Grammatikakis, Inaccess

Solar is lucrative business with high potential return on investment. However, there are some key differences between managing solar assets and managing financial assets. Solar assets entail a layer of complexity with physical and technical moving parts, which have a direct impact on yield and hence the ROI. So, how do you monitor and manage a solar asset to ensure maximum performance over the entirety of the system’s lifetime?

In preparation for the inaugural edition of the Solar Asset Management Australia conference, we have joined forces with industry experts from Rystad Energy, Blueshore and Inaccess to bring you an insightful session on the asset management side of utility-scale solar projects in Australia.

What you will learn in this Webinar?

  • Who are the key developers and owners in the Australian solar market?
  • Which factors are most important in managing solar assets?
  • What are the key issues facing solar asset managers in Australia?
  • How to use monitoring systems to ensure strong performance?
