Project Visit to Alcatraz

PV + Battery Storage Visit (sold out)
    (should be booked as an addition to the conference ticket)



  • On the day after the conference (Friday 18 March), we provide a fully arranged project visit to an operating PV + battery storage project, near to the conference venue. The project is a 305kWp PV project, using 8 inverters and 959 modules, installed in 2012. The batteries used are Deka Unigy II batteries, now operating 4 years. Besides a unique opportunity to get first hand insights in operational issues of a PV+battery system, we can guarantee this is also a highly valuable networking opportunity.
