When the construction of a PV plant is completed and the plant reaches the operational stage, O&M decisions become the sole means of influencing power yield and financial revenue.
As Martin Smirl, Senior Manager of Operations at leading vertically integrated O&M provider SunEdison, comments: “Without best practice in O&M, you risk revenue streams from the PPAs, the RECs, or the performance guarantees"
Furthermore, legislative changes and reductions to feed-in-tariff schemes are stimulating global expansion and local development in the O&M market.
With up to a forty-year asset life view of the plant, O&M providers such as SunEdison, First Solar, EDF Renewable Services and SunPower are focussed on the future, making sure that the O&M decisions made today will maximise plant performance over its entire lifetime. In the newly released whitepaper The Future of European O&M as PV Markets Go Global, produced in conjunction with the PV O&M Europe forum, these leading providers discuss the strategies they are employing in the PV plants under their operation.
