On 12th May, 2022, the 3rd Solar+Wind Congress & Expo Vietnam 2022 was held at Landmark 81. At this conference, Mr. Thomas Jakobsen – Managing Director of Indochina Energy Partners and other speakers shared solutions to optimize solar projects.
The 3rd Solar+Wind Congress & EXPO Vietnam 2022 was organized by Energy Box. This event attracted the participation of a variety of businesses working in the renewable energy industry, delegates from state agencies, financial institutions and market analysts. They met and discussed the latest market information, policies, FiT, solar and wind power projects in Vietnam including problems and solutions.
Thomas was honored to be a speaker at this event and had an interesting topic about solutions to increase efficiency and utilize finance efficiently for solar projects.
Solutions to optimize solar projects
Thomas emphasized two important points in optimizing solar projects namely operations and maintenance (O&M) process and design of the solar energy system. In terms of the O&M process, although Vietnam is a potential area to exploit solar energy, weather conditions such as heavy rain, floods, etc are quite harsh that can negatively affect the efficiency of solar projects. For that reason, businesses need to digitalize the O&M process, especially focusing on preventive maintenance to ensure capacity and profit from solar projects.
At the same time, paying more attention to the design of the system prior to installation is absolutely critical to optimize solar projects.
