Session 1 I In the face of extreme weather: Hail, wind, and fires

We investigate cases and present field data from weather-related damages, and dive into recent issues from the field. Investigation into changing technologies and impact resistance against hail damage – there is a balance between technology and reliability to reduce premature degradation and field failures.

Session 2 I Building resiliency through modern O&M

Operations and maintenance is now a much more critical piece of the solar landscape and the key to long-term resilience and competitive LCOE. As grid-scale solar becomes a mature, sophisticated business — so is the modernization of the O&M segment. The O&M role in the U.S. is being increasingly contracted out to a third party – a trend typical of a maturing power industry. Insights and discussions into alliances supporting the long-term ownership challenges and opportunities ahead for a 30-year-plus asset.
