About Utility-Scale Solar Power Plant Fundamentals 2018

UTILITY-SCALE SOLAR POWER PLANT FUNDAMENTALS, CHICAGO, OCTOBER 10-11, 2018

Utility-scale solar power plants now constitute the largest number of facilities under development in the past few years.  Industry experts confirm that trend will hold and perhaps even accelerate as the demand for renewable energy resources escalates. Thus, the pool is expanding of project developers, investors and utilities who must understand how to plan, develop, and interconnect these plants to the existing electric grid.

This course is designed to familiarize attendees with the key elements of planning solar power plant resources as well as design and development elements, including an understanding of component function and selection, site selection, and operational optimization. A broad review of development and capital cost deployment, coupled with energy production modeling techniques, will provide course participants with the basics of cost-of-energy analysis and how design decisions can impact overall plant economics. Solar industry practitioners will also review procurement best practices, along with design and equipment procurement considerations for mitigating risk for long-term asset owners.
