A comprehensive, up-to-date and business-focused roadmap to success in delivering solar power growth, today and tomorrow. Attendees will gain a good understanding of the key factors from an integrated, multidisciplinary and commercial viewpoint, including:
target market analysis, economic competitiveness, channels-to-market, financing influences and risk, project development processes, best practices and emerging technologies.
The course schedule includes illustration of key project development considerations, including energy yield, financial and other simple calculations, along with the chance to discuss key planning and market environment considerations.
In keeping with the business-focused theme of the course, these illustrative exercises are designed to provide time-efficient clarification of the key course takeaways, aimed at commercially-focused business developers and investors. They are therefore accessible to non-experts, not designed to replicate the complex or in-depth detailed planning undertaken – over much longer periods – by engineers and technical teams.
