SolarPower Europe launches O&M Best Practice Checklist India edition

The checklist is based on SolarPower Europe (SPE), the National Solar Energy Federation of India (NSEFI) and the Indo-German Energy Forum (IGEF-SO), who jointly organised a conference at the Intersolar India 2020 virtual exhibition, where the "Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Best Practice Guidelines" for solar plants in India were launched.

The European guidelines have been adapted to the Indian context by a dedicated task force since March 2020. Amongst others, German companies such as PI Berlin and STEAG, but also the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and KfW made significant contributions. With their on the ground experiences and corresponding inputs, more than 40 Task Force members from 25 European and Indian member companies of NSEFI and SPE made this publication the most valuable guidelines for the sector available in India.

Estimates show that India’s O&M market has reached an annual market volume of more than 300 Mio. USD. This without even counting the increased electricity generation achieved through proper O&M.
