Smart Solar PV – Data Analysis and IoT Forum

October 26 & 27, 2017 - Berlin, Germany

Smart Solar PV - Data Analysis and IoT Forum

The Smart Solar PV – Data Analysis and IoT Forum will show you how to enhance performance, reduce costs, reduce risks with effective data analysis and the IoT. The 2 day forum will feature 19 interactive sessions and 29 speakers. The Forum covers all aspects of big data and its impact on the solar sector as well as identifying issues and challenges and providing potential solutions. It’s a great opportunity for industry professionals to come together to exchange the ideas, explore new thinking and help shape the development of the industry. The sessions are set up to be interactive for the attendees to get involved into the experience-sharing process and to tackle existing problems in real-time discussions. Use this chance to get the most out of the great benchmarking, networking, and business opportunities.

  • Understand how high level data can be useful to flag performance issues quickly
  • Gain pratical insight on examples of patterns in the data and what they mean
  • Understand why IT Security is vastly underestimated in the renewable energy industry and solar PV in special
  • Learn from the hands-on experience of industry-leaders on using data analytic tools to reduce failures
  • Learn about automation and drone data collection

Major Outcomes

  • Reduce the O&M costs
  • Maximize ROI
  • Increase systems’ responsiveness
  • Optimize desicion-making process
  • Employ advanced analytics (AA), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)
  • Increase your competitiveness
