Providing access to clean and reliable energy to off-grid populations represents a massive market opportunity within the energy transition. Global energy players have started to take notice and are making strategic investments and partnerships in this rapidly growing sector. In this webinar, Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables solar analyst Benjamin Attia and Peter Weston, Director of Programmes at energy access nonprofit Energy 4 Impact, will discuss findings from a recent research collaboration on the corporate-level energy access investment landscape and the rise of solar home system and mini-grid companies. The webinar will also compare and contrast the approaches of different strategic investors as they scale the utility of the future business model at the last mile.
Corporations of all sizes are increasingly interested in clean energy, whether for cost savings, resilience, corporate social responsibility or a combination thereof. While corporate offtakers accounted for an impressive 22 percent of U.S. renewable power purchase agreements (PPAS) in 2018, PPAs are just one way to invest in renewables like wind and solar.
Have you ever met with the ideal solar prospect and been confident the deal would close but it didn’t? Are you interested in learning specific strategies that can be quickly applied to help you improve your closing rate on residential solar sales? If so, we have advice on best practices from expert industry sales professionals who have sold millions of dollars’ worth of solar, giving you some of their best tips.
The Bifacial Tracker Evaluation Center (BiTEC), world’s first evaluation center specialized in bifacial trackers, performs rigorous assessment of installation and control parameter influences on bifacial tracker performance. This webinar will present the results of the tests to measure what is the impact on bifacial production of factors such as module mounting height above grade, rear-side obstructions that cause shading, and inter-row spacing distance.
With the investment tax credit step down beginning in 2020, utility-scale solar developers in the U.S. have begun to solidify their strategy on how to take advantage of the maximum amount of the ITC possible. Colin Smith, senior analyst for U.S. solar at WoodMackenzie Power & Renewables will share their forecast for the U.S. utility solar market, how much developers expect to qualify for commence construction, and how ITC safe harbor strategy will affect both supply and demand.
As the PV industry continues to grow, systems have achieved better performance at drastically lower costs compared to just a few years ago. Moving forward, quality and reliability of systems will be increasingly important to ensure consistent performance and output from PV projects. Choosing the right technology and materials to improve system energy yield and long-term performance will provide valuable benefits to our customers and help them to realize lower LCOE. In this webinar, we will review mono PERC and Bifacial PERC technology and discuss how they can improve both PV system performance and costs with higher power output, higher energy yield and better reliability.
Come join us for a GTM Squared interactive call on Tuesday, July 17. This quarter's call will focus on grid edge applications: tech innovation, policy and regulation, and power utility business models.
Jeff St. John, author of Squared's weekly Dispatches from the Grid Edge column, will kick off with a presentation on the state of the grid edge market.
After his presentation, Jeff will be joined by Stephen Lacey and Julia Pyper for an editorial roundtable. The group will debate and discuss topics from across the grid edge ecosystem and take questions from audience members.
