3 Outline State of the Market Issues and Challenges Potential Solutions Benefits Summary and Q&A 3

4 State of the Market Turmoil, uncertainty, change Daily news of failures Price compression accelerating consolidation What is going on? % growth driven by US, China, India and Latin America 4

5 Outline State of the Market Issues and Challenges Potential Solutions Benefits Summary and Q&A 5

6 Issues and Challenges in PV Utility PV monitoring characterized by Dynamic. Evolving technology/standards/needs Volume. Large quantities of data Remote. Local and remote operations with changing O&M structures Uncertainty. Forecasting and power scheduling Needs Flexibility Visibility 6

7 Outline State of the Market Issues and Challenges Potential Solutions Benefits Summary and Q&A 7

8 Potential Solutions To meet the monitoring needs of this new and dynamic generation technology... What should we monitor, and How should we monitor it? 8

9 What Should we Monitor? Systems and components Solar PV KPIs Interfacing with external systems 9

10 What Should we Monitor? - Systems and Components How deep into the array should we monitor? Block 1 Plant Block 2 Block n Potential monitoring points for a 550 MW PV power plant under construction in CA Array Array 2 Array n Container 1 Container 2 Container n 800+ Inverter 1 Inverter 2 Inverter n 30,000+ Combiner 1 Combiner 2 Combiner n 7-level asset hierarchy 700,000+ String 1 String 2 String n Panel 1 9,000,000+ Panel 2 Panel n 10

11 String Monitoring Cost/Benefits The economic benefit of string monitoring is a function of the price of energy, percentage of strings affected, and cost of labor 11

12 What Should we Monitor? - PV KPIs Production Efficiency Availability Actual Expected Variance PR PI Normalized array yield Equivalent availability Capacity factor To monitor and extract value from the assets what data should you monitor? Economics O&M costs Fixed Variable Commercial availability 12

13 What Should we Monitor?
