The Open Solar Performance and Reliability Clearinghouse (oSPARC™) is a user-driven actuarial database for comparing and assessing the performance, health and reliability of solar projects. SunSpec developed oSPARC in conjunction with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to support the Solar Access to Public Capital (SAPC) initiative of over 170 companies.
Through a new partnership, oSPARC participants will be able to join a new GTM Research program, oSPARC Plus, to analyze project and portfolio performance, compare system characteristics, and ease access to future project capital.
Why get involved?
Data providers who participate in the GTM Research program through oSPARC Plus will receive regular customized reports on their fleet performance and tailored benchmarks. Participation in oSPARC Plus is free of charge.
Data providers can sign up for the program immediately, and GTM Research expects to begin delivering reports in the second half of 2014.
Solar installers, EPCs, O&M providers, monitoring companies, fleet operators and investors are all welcome to participate. If you're interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on participation.
