20 June 2018

09:00 - 11:00 Operations & Maintenance Task Force meeting: O&M for distributed solar

Room Z1.428 - Registration needed

In the past years, SolarPower Europe's O&M Best Practices Guidelines for utility-scale projects became a respected document in the industry. It is widely accepted that instances of under-performance and poor practices are also common in the distributed solar segment. As a result, SolarPower Europe's O&M Task Force is now looking at how best to apply the established utility-scale best practices to distributed projects. In this meeting, the O&M Task Force will present the first draft of the Distributed O&M Best Practices. Interested parties are invited to join this session and discuss with members of the O&M Task Force. Places are limited. Read more here


15:00 - 17:00 Solar Mobility

Room 2 - Registration needed

The uptake of electro-mobility in Europe is an undisputable trend, opening a whole lot of new opportunities for Solar. From solar powered vehicles to solar powered charging infrastructures, up to the development of innovative Solar-powered supply offers, the high decentralization of the Solar sector makes it an ideal candidate to accompany the roll-out of electrical vehicles, in our cities and regions. This meeting will kick-start the work of SolarPower Europe on Solar-mobility, inviting stakeholders to share their views on the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Room 12 - Per invitation only/ Registration needed

Solar, Storage and Digitalisation - the new European Industrial Revolution. The European Commission and SolarPower Europe are both working on a new industrial strategy for solar and batteries in Europe. 

Intersolar Europe is an ideal opportunity for a high-level forum, where high level industry representatives would discuss the vision on clean energy industrial development with the European Commission Vice-President Maros Sefcovic.


16:00 - 18:00 Global Associations Workshop

Room 2 - Open to all Intersolar visitors

The German Solar Association (BSW-Solar), SolarPower Europe, and Global Solar Council (GSC) co-host the Global Associations workshop, which will bring together national solar associations from across the world. The workshop will give you a better understanding of solar PV market development worldwide, keep you up to date with national regulatory frameworks and share best practices. 

National associations will present the development of their respective national solar markets in the past year and their forecasts for the coming 5 years. They will also make an update of their national policy development, highlighting the existing barriers, the best practices and the coming challenges and opportunities for solar power development in their countries.
