In November and December of this year green­tech was invited to several industry events for pre­sen­ting O&M best prac­tices and inno­va­ti­ve deve­lop­ments in this field:

The Solar­Power Europe O&M Best Practice Gui­de­li­nes have been trans­la­ted into the German language recently. This handbook was pre­sen­ted at the 20th „Forum Neue Ener­gie­welt“ from 21st- 22nd November 2019 in Berlin within a separate session. Six industry rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ves pre­sen­ted the back­ground, targets and content of the document. In this context, Jörn Cars­ten­sen, Managing Director of green­tech, talked about main­ten­an­ce of PV systems, inclu­ding repair, revam­ping and repowering. A real life project was used to provide recom­men­da­ti­ons with regard to analysis, planning, exe­cu­ti­on and review of a revam­ping project. “We appre­cia­te that the O&M Best Practice Gui­de­li­nes have been trans­la­ted into the German language. As we have been involved in the pro­duc­tion of this document, we are pleased to see how the handbook is accepted in the industry and will play an important role for further pro­fes­sio­na­li­sa­ti­on.” says Jörn Cars­ten­sen, Managing Director of green­tech.

O&M Task Force Members presenting Best Practices Guidelines

On December 4th and 5th the fourth  „Smart Solar PV – Data Ana­ly­tics and IOT” took place in Berlin. greentech’s Managing Director Aleksis Schäfer pre­sen­ted at this con­fe­rence about a new analysis method which enables iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on of marginal per­for­mance devia­ti­ons early and reliably. Espe­ci­al­ly on PV systems with less granular moni­to­ring systems, it might happen that slight and gradual degradation-effects are dis­co­ve­r­ed too late. Thanks to the Power-Curve-Analysis, deve­lo­ped by green­tech, even early per­for­mance devia­ti­ons can be iden­ti­fied, and cor­re­spon­ding actions can be taken. “Our port­fo­lio consists of a variety of PV systems with regard to age, topology and moni­to­ring systems. The­re­fo­re, it is of high impor­t­an­ce to have a con­sis­tent but flexible and inde­pen­dent metho­do­lo­gy, which delivers reliable results and enables highest system per­for­mance for our custo­mers.” says Aleksis Schäfer, Managing Director at green­tech

Yaw Ofori, Managing Director of green­tech UK, was invited to speak at the „O&M and Asset Manage­ment“ con­fe­rence in London, orga­nis­ed by UK Solar Trade Asso­cia­ti­on and Solar Power Europe on December 5th. In his keynote pre­sen­ta­ti­on, Yaw Ofori talked about greentech’s expe­ri­ence in the area of inverter repowering and intro­du­ced a real life show case, to appro­xi­mate­ly 200 dele­ga­tes at the event. The fol­lo­wing panel dis­cus­sed, if owners and ope­ra­tors of PV systems would utilize the full poten­ti­al of repowering measures and when the ideal point of time for repowering projects to be embarked upon. “It is a great pleasure to meet with other industry experts at this event and exchange on latest trends in PV O&M. We are proud to be part of the Solar­Power Europe com­mu­ni­ty, which again con­ti­nues to set high stan­dards with the release of the 4th edition of the O&M Best Practice Guid­li­nes.” says Yaw Ofori, Managing Director of green­tech UK.
