Jan 01, 1970

This highly interactive virtual event will bring together solar experts from up and down the value chain to discuss the latest 2GW tender in South Africa, the ideal positioning of solar+storage to meet this tender’s expectation and the importance of quality, reliability and technology innovation for PV solutions to meet the South African electricity needs successfully in the long run.

During this webinar we will address

  • Presentation of the 2GW tender and analysis of the key success factors for PV + storage
  • Presentation of latest modules technology (bifacial, half-cut cells, super high efficiency modules,…)
  • Deep-dive into the impact of quality on product duration (annual O&M analysis of 3GW installed capacity, performance of bifacial modules with backsheets and glass-glass, lightweight panels)
  • Latest developments and technologies for utility-scale storage solutions (technology, performance, reliability, limitations, …)
  • Reality of solar equipment aging in the South African context
  • Insights on best practices in developing utility-scale plants with bifacial + storage in SSA (yield modelling, impact of albedo factor, opportunity and impact of utility-scale storage, …)


Speakers :

Dr. Freddie Vorster – PVInsight – Chief Technical Adviser

Dr. Lucie Garreau-Iles – DuPont – EMEA Technical Program Manager PV

Kevin Robinson – LONGi Solar – Technical Sales Manager

Davide Pesenti – IBESA – Associate Researcch Analyst
