The global market for solar Operations and Maintenance (O&M) was valued at around 88 GW in 2014 and is expected to almost triple by 2018. With 1% increase in the performance of a system to translate into as much as a 10% increase in profit, the recent surge in PV performance monitoring and service activities will continue this year.
As MENA’s solar markets are more mature, developers and EPC contractors are currently evaluating O&M strategies to maximise system performance and long-term asset profitability of their plants.
Solar O&M and Asset Management MENA will be held on 17-18 October 2016 in Amman, Jordan. This conference is organized by ACM and will focus on O&M and asset management strategies to maximise system performance and long-term profitability of utility and commercial scale solar plants across the MENA region.
The change has started in the MENA region
In January 2016, the Jordanian Ministry of Energy raised its solar capacity target to 1000MW by 2020. The kingdom originally stated 600MW by 2020 but this figure has been raised due to rising demand.
300 MW are currently under construction in Jordan. 250 MW will enter operational phase in August 2016.
2,000MW will be generated by “Noor” solar plant in Morocco by 2020, whilst Kuwait and UAE are planning to generate 15% of their power generation from renewables by 2030.
Why take part in Solar O&M and Asset Management MENA conference?
This conference is being launched to help demonstrating best practice implementation to answer the specific requirements and challenges in the MENA region.
This unique and timely event will bring together the relevant government bodies, solar asset owners, investors, lenders, O&M community and solution providers.
