Neil will be speaking at the session entitled "Resource Analysis for Finance Ready Projects", and Jim will be moderating in the "Technology Innovations for Renewable Project" panel.


The resource analysis session will focus on best-practice in wind energy resource assessment and energy yield prediction. The presentation will also discuss the real life inter-dependencies between a wide range of technical and non-technical disciplines, including land deals, wind farm design, turbine contracts, planning conditions and how these can impact on future revenue. The technology innovations panel will discuss the latest technological innovation, expectation for commercialisation, and expected impacts on project financeability.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
