Solar Asset Optimization - Presented by Infocast

Maximize Your Portfolio Performance, Financial Returns, and Valuations in the New Solar Era

The total market for megawatt-scale O&M and asset management is expected to surpass 390 GW by 2020. As the installed base of long-lived solar assets continues to grow, O&M has become even more important in maximizing system performance and long-term profitability. Investors, banks and asset owners are increasingly focused on the risks and performance of assets, and requiring detailed O&M data in order to assess project risks, profitability and valuation.
Investors and O&M providers alike are turning their attention to finding best strategies for ongoing management of PV installations, both financially (asset management) and technically (operations & maintenance). Only those with an in-depth understanding of business and technical challenges facing O&M and asset management industry will be able to effectively position themselves in this rapidly growing market.
Attend Infocast’s Solar Asset Optimization to explore strategies to optimize the performance, financial returns, and valuation of renewable energy assets portfolios. From new ownership strategies to due diligence of a project for acquisition, ownership and operation; and risk mitigation, this event is the perfect opportunity to learn best practices and apply lessons learned to ensuring and enhancing the returns of portfolio of solar assets. Also, explore the latest efforts and developments to meet the challenges of operating and maintaining its expanding asset base.
PLUS Infocast’s Solar Asset Optimization Technology Workshop will lay out the technological and operational models needed to help asset owners reduce costs, increase energy output and ultimately increase financial performance. Through communication with operations and maintenance professionals, asset managers and owners can learn ways to maximize their investment through better management of assets.

SOLV Solar – Swinerton


SOLV brings unmatched value to our renewable energy clients. Our EPC experience taught us that a complete solution was needed. SOLV evolved into providing the best service for our customers. SOLV is backed by Swinerton Builders, a 128 year-old construction company. The SOLV solution includes SMART monitoring, data analytics, asset management support, in-field technicians, and SCADA platforms providing the best optimization and management solution.

Our national in-house SOLV team configures a custom energy plan, analyzes vitals detecting the smallest concerns, and diagnoses plant issues in order to respond with SMARTer solutions. SOLV performance engineers and operations network staff continually monitors owners’ facilities, all with pinpoint accuracy. Plant performance anomalies and system concerns are evaluated in minutes prior to service call deployment.

SOLV maximizes energy production to provide our clients with the highest value. We accomplish this by offering:

  • Turn-key operations from Gen-Tie to module
  • Reliable data management by Locus Energy
  • In-house SCADA, substation and performance engineers
  • Robust web and cloud-based monitoring and HMI solutions
  • Customized approach for each client’s reporting needs
  • Over 1 GW of EPC and 1.5 GW of monitoring / O&M experience
  • SOLV certified and factory authorized technicians
  • Automated notification of work order status
  • Fully equipped service trucks
  • Preventative maintenance for warranty presentation
  • Commissioning and QA/QC services
  • SOLV monitoring for new and existing plants
  • NERC compliance to reliability standards including CIP protocols



Solar plants are soft targets for copper and module thieves because there’s little risk of electrocution removing cables at night when they are not energized by the sun. Viasys Solar Secure is a security partner for solar developers, operators, and investors seeking plant protection and peace of mind from system downtime and the expensive repairs caused by theft and vandalism. Viasys Video Alarm system infrastructure creates an electronic fence around a solar plant, sending video alarm images only when a breech attempt occurs. The heart of the concept is an advanced video analysis software, which identifies intruders against a dynamic outdoor environment providing actionable intelligence, situational awareness, and early warning before any damage is done.
