PAST Webinar /// Advanced data analytics and aerial inspections for portfolio asset optimization

20 February 2018 - 09:00am PST - 12:00pm EST - 6:00pm CET


As solar plants and portfolios get larger and more complex, system operators must combine data from multiple sources to make the best decisions to optimize the performance of their assets.

In this webinar Rob Andrews, CEO of Heliolytics and Hugo Lapie, Director of Sales of QOS will discuss different cases of investigation using real-time data, aerial inspections, and prediction tools to identify issues, improve diagnosis and shorten resolution times. 


Topics covered:

  • How to identify under-performance and faults from real vs expected energy?
  • What added value does aerial inspection data bring to optimize asset performance?
  • How does data from multiple sources integrate to optimize site operations?
