Staying Competitive in the Solar Industry: Are Smart Modules the Answer?

Tuesday, May 7th 2013 9:00am - 10:00am PT / 12:00pm - 1:00pm ET / 6:00pm - 7:00pm Paris

Continuously declining solar module prices, and the resultant squeeze on profit margins, is pressuring solar module manufacturers to find and implement new technologies.  One promising technology is smart modules, which optimize the available electricity output. A competing technology is to use micro-inverters. Both technologies seek to derive the highest power possible from a solar module with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT), by varying the amounts of voltage and current.

 

Our solar experts will review the challenges and opportunities which smart modules offer, including costs and performance, and why many solar manufacturers consider smart modules as critical to providing their customers with efficient and reliable solar power.

 

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Why Smart Modules?
  • Benefits of Technology

                Higher energy density & harvest

                Flexibility

                Reduced Costs

                Increased IRR

                Safety Planning

                O&M, Monitoring, & Fleet Management

  • Case Studies: Projects & Success Stories
