Maximizing the Benefits of Solar Energy Technology

DATE(s): September 22, 2015
VENUE:
Holiday Inn & Suites Makati
Trainings

Rationale
Solar Energy Technology has gained so much popularity. Aside from its role in environmental protection, developers and end users have high expectations on cost savings and financial benefits. Know if these expectations are actually met and understand the conditions that affect them.

The lecture will provide an introduction to solar technology and their actual uses. This will cover solar applications for self consumption, Net Metering, solar with storage, and grid export. Actual case studies will also be presented.

A demonstration of the Homer Pro software will be shown to do technical and financial analysis of solar and hybrid systems and ways to optimize the design to maximize the benefits and bankability of the project.

Validation methods of projected system performance using real-time monitoring and translation of metered data into the Homer Pro software for analysis and optimization will be presented.
