Project Details


The projects vision is to significantly improve the profitability of PhotoVoltaic (PV) power plants, through a Fully Automated Service Execution (FASE) platform, implemented as a cloud based IT solution. The service platform will integrate state-of-the-art fault diagnosis, and portfolio based service planning and execution automation. Our aim is to increase the 30 year lifetime yield of PV plants by an estimated 8-10%, and reduce total service costs over lifetime by 40-50%. This will catalyse PV towards being the most competitive renewable energy source, with an estimated kWh price of 5-6 eurocent/kWh in 2018 from large scale PV plants under Danish irradiation conditions.
