25-26 March 2014 /// San Francisco, USA

Worldwide it becomes apparent that even for small PV power plants professional O&M and Asset Management can lead up to thousands of dollars of extra revenue per year. In other words: a profound understanding and investing in the right O&M and Asset Management Services is not just a basic need, it also provides substantial financial benefits.

With this opportunity in mind, Solarplaza organized Solar O&M North America - a 2-day conference and exhibition - in San Francisco, on 25 and 26 March 2014. With nearly 270 participants, already in its first year the event has positioned itself as the most focused and complete event in North America on PV O&M and Asset Management. Topics varying from Module Issues and Standardization to Legal O&M issues and Budgeting of Asset Management have been discussed, both on a 'boots on the ground' and Strategy Management level.

We look forward to next year's Solar O&M North America and will start to work on the event program in a few months. Make sure to save the (preliminary) date in your agenda: 24, 25 March 2015.
