Anniversary edition of SAMNA to take stock of progress and map out the way forward
ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS - 9 October 2023 - On the 9th and 10th of April 2024, Solarplaza will return to San Diego, California, to host the tenth edition of the Solarplaza Summit Asset Management North America. The anniversary of the leading conference dedicated to the operational phase of solar assets takes place at a pivotal moment for the North American PV industry as a whole. Taking stock of a decade’s worth of solar growth and maturation of the asset management space, the event will gather the industry’s top experts to map out what’s to come next.
In the ten years the Solarplaza has hosted this event, the US solar market grew at a steep average annual rate of 24% and recently managed to pass the mark of 150 GW of cumulative PV capacity. Over the course of 2023 alone, 30 GW of capacity is expected to have come online and the industry is in flux. One year after the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was introduced, its much-hyped impact has become tangible, as over $100 billion of new investments in solar and storage companies have been announced and are starting to materialize. This year’s conference program will delve into the evolving asset management landscape, take stock of the impact of the IRA, and shed light on the changes we can expect in the year to come.
International market dynamics, such as energy and commodity price increases, supply chain constraints, labor shortages, and growing risks due to climate change-induced extreme weather events and cyber security threats, all profoundly impact the American solar market and thus will feature in the event program. Establishing a robust foundation is imperative to bolster the industry's resilience, creating opportunities for streamlining operations and revisiting corporate strategies for commercial and risk mitigation purposes. Besides the most recent market trends, strategies for optimizing asset management, and advancements in O&M technologies, the conference program will also dig into the latest NERC regulations and the most recent storage technology advantages.
