Grid connected solar project deployment on a large scale is an ever evolving area and there is a growing need to understand the various modules and concepts associated with it. Developers, investors, EPC players, OEMs etc need better understanding and awareness of the potential challenges, risks and opportunities facing these projects.
Each project has its own complexities in terms of financial models, managerial capabilities, project evaluation, project structures, technical requirements etc. and right construction management skills are required to overcome these.
Solar PV Project Construction master-class aims to address new challenges in terms of project management, project construction, financial management and assessing the risks involved in the project development.Solar PV Project Construction is a rapidly evolving field with new solutions in construction, logistics and supply chain, equipment technology, applications and services as project developers seek to reduce the construction time and improve project performance.
The workshop will offer an excellent learning and networking opportunity for representatives from all stakeholders of solar industry. A combination of presentations by invited speakers, case study sessions, and discussion sessions reviewing recent advances in technology make this workshop a must attend for you and your team members.
