How to Reduce the Costs & Increase the Efficiency of the Balance of Systems & Balance of Plants in Your Solar Project …

How to Reduce the Costs & Increase the Efficiency of the Balance of Systems & Balance of Plants in Your Solar Project

Imagine being able to radically increase the efficiency of the balance of systems in your solar project, avoiding delays and unexpected failure...

You will find out how to overcome your most pressing issues and challenges:

* Optimize the cost-efficiency of the balance of systems/ balance of plant - compare the cost of technological, design and construction decisions so that you can maximize performance at minimum effort and cost
* Calculating the cost of ownership and LCOE – Consider variables including water rights, project time, supply chain, O&M, insurance, technology cost and much more, for optimum cost reduction in your project!
* Innovative case studies – hear from the integrators that have successfully reduced their BoS/BoP costs in their PV, Thin Film, CPV and CSP installations & ensure you
