The combined application of solar generation and energy storage can provide multiple benefits to many system stakeholders. Across the globe, DNV GL is leading the way in supporting client success with Solar + Storage opportunities.
Join us for answers to these compelling questions:
- What are the current market dynamics and where are the challenges?
- What are the real-world benefits on both sides of the meter?
- What is needed to minimize risk and accelerate deployment?
As a result of attending this webinar, project developers, independent power producers, financiers, utilities and manufacturers will gain greater understanding of the combined benefits of solar and storage applications and what is required for successful implementation. This will include the importance of testing and bankability, standards and safety.
