Come to this session to find out:
Selling your assets
- If so who are the most likely buyers and why?
- What can standalone sites be used for?
- How much should they be valued?
Following the Energy Storage Summit earlier in the year, the feedback was that investors were calling developers lazy and vice versa. So for this session we have decided to host a debate where investors and developers can talk about risk, where it lies, where it should lie and who needs to become more flexible.
• Passing commissioning tests
• Meeting the requirements of the grid services contract
• Ensuring safety performance for a battery storage asset
• Optimising maintenance and inspections
• Getting the most from equipment supplier warranties
• Monitoring battery health

• O&M selection and how to get the best out of your new contract
• Warranty expiration: Where and when will the contracts expire and the factors that must be considered in the negotiation process.
• Repowering: When is the right time to do this and where are the new opportunities to win business?
• Reflections on the last 5 years of solar farm operations. What has been successful? What lessons have we learned? What would we do differently?
• What innovations are on the horizon in solar O&M that could bring about the next step change in performance and /or cost? How will the automation revolution change O&M? How can we accelerate these changes?
• How important is the relationship with equipment OEMs? How can collaboration with OEMs enhance value during repowering?
• Which countires shall deliver of stability and growth?
• Newest auctions: Spain and France
• What capacity is left for support mechanisms in Europe?
• Looking beyond the FiT to subsidy free business models, success stories in the open market
