Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Managing Solar Energy: An interview with Adrian De Luca of Locus Energy



http://www.renewableenergymagazine.com/article/managing-solar-energy-an-interview-with-adrian-20150506



The rapid growth in solar has meant that onsite energy managers are finding it difficult to manage their expanding onsite solar fleets, which often involve different types of equipment, installers, geographies, inverters and monitoring software. Collecting data from such diverse sources and translating it into actionable operations and management (O&M) commands can be time-consuming and expensive for even the most experienced facilities management teams.

The rapid growth of solar installations has resulted in data sets that are much bigger and more complicated – as well as more actionable – than in the past, making data management a big business. Furthermore, since solar systems have a life cycle of 20 to 25 years or more, data is accumulating over time as well. Locus Energy is helping to solve these challenges by working with managers of residential, commercial and industrial and utility-scale solar fleets to analyze on-site energy production data in order to better understand the reasons for underperformance.
