Risk mitigation is crucial in the development stage of a solar PV project. These risks influence the ability of a project to obtain financing.

With solar photovoltaic (PV) projects, a major area of risk is the selection of key equipment suppliers, choosing reliable technology, optimising the design to maximise generation, and quantifying accurately the expected energy production of the asset.

UL has developed a strong understanding of the key design considerations and best practices required to increase confidence in solar PV projects to support its clients on risk mitigation, understanding technology trends and challenges on the financing of those.

This webinar demonstrates the benefit of a suitable selection of key technologies and insight into new trends, accurate energy modelling and relevant design considerations for utility-scale PV projects in Africa.
