Solar power is an infinite source of renewable energy and photovoltaics (PV) is the technology that enables the conversion of sunlight into electricity.
Solar PV technology is highly flexible and can be used in small-scale installations or utility-scale projects, either ground mounted or floating.
The solar PV industry is rapidly expanding worldwide, as the PV technology keeps increasing its competitiveness driven by R&D. Solar module prices have plummeted dramatically in recent years, falling by up to 93% between 2010 and 2020.
In today’s global marketplace, the solar supply chain spans across multiple countries, leading to new supply chain management challenges. Relying on specialized support from an independent third party, such as Enertis Applus+, is always underscored for proper technical advice at different stages of photovoltaic projects.
Technical Advisory & Consulting Services
The Enertis Applus+ highly specialized team of consultants supports clients with tailored services for utility-scale projects, such as solar resource and energy yield assessments, CAPEX & OPEX estimations, technical reviews of main contracts (EPC, O&M, PPA), reviews of financial models, EPC milestone reviews, and construction monitoring.
Our team of specialized engineers offer comprehensive back-office technical engineering and owner’s engineering services, providing support across all the stages of solar PV projects, from pre-planning, to planning and development, to implementation and construction.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control Services
Our team of qualified inspectors, engineers, and Senior Project Managers assists our clients from PV module supplier and product due diligence/selection and contract negotiations, to factory and manufacturing audits, to post-installation and field inspections. Through risk mitigation of long-term PV project predictability, these services shelter our clients from the procurement and commissioning of non-reliable components to protect their profits.
Testing & Optimization Services
Our team of highly trained and specialized experts is equipped to carry out most of our in-lab and on-site tests globally. We have gained substantial technical knowledge thanks to our in-house photovoltaic testing laboratory, internationally accredited according to UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard, and we also developed a mobile laboratory equipped with the most advanced technology for bifacial and large solar PV modules testing.
