Welcome to America’s Leading Solar Asset Management, O&M and Storage Forum

The solar PV industry in the United States has seen a staggering 39-fold growth in the US the last decade. With power prices for Solar PV now at record lows, the role of Origination, Finance & investment, O&M, Asset Management and Energy Storage has never been more essential in the acquisition or ownership of projects to ensure yields are maximised and ROI is delivered.

The 5th Annual PV Operations USA conference promises two days of tailored, highly interactive, information and peer to peer learning opportunities for solar PV O&M, Asset Management, Finance and Investment professionals delivered by key budget holders. This unique combination of job disciplines provides attendees with the chance for cross-discipline networking and expert education for acquiring, owning and operating solar PV assets in North America.

Very relevant subject matter - much better than the larger events like SPI in my opinion.
