By Edmée Kelsey, Edmée Kelsey is founder and CEO of 3megawatt, a software solution provider for the renewable energy industry. 3megawatt has developed BluePoint, the largest and fastest growing enterprise-class asset management platform in the industry. BluePoint is designed to automate and control the entire renewable asset management lifecycle. Kelsey was the former CFO of Main Street Power, where she closed project financing for over 100 distributed solar PV projects and was responsible for the asset management of those solar assets. She was also formerly a VP at the investment bank JP Morgan and managing director of a clean energy corporate finance advisory firm.

Reporting | The growing range of stakeholders in the solar business, from the owners of small rooftop systems to pension funds, require timely and adequate information on asset performance,
but to varying levels of detail. Edmée Kelsey looks at how the industry is rising to the increasingly onerous reporting challenge

It wouldn’t be an Intersolar Europe edition of this journal without a look at a solar market closer to home; we touch on the resurgent French solar market which looks set to provide a major source of demand. As module and inverter swap outs are a growing line of work for O&M providers, we also examine the issues that emerge, such as potential induced degradation and exposing the shortcomings of projects built without adequate monitoring capabilities. TUV Rheinland presents a technical paper that could prove to be an investor’s best friend by providing a method to push energy yield performance calculations for modules beyond an extrapolation of their standard test conditions. We also introduce our new conference, PV ModuleTech, to be held in Malaysia this November, dedicated to scrutinising the technical performance claims of manufacturers and seeking out best practice.
