The commitments made at global climate change conference COP26 will propel the solar power industry into its next stage of growth, according to one of Europe’s leading PV specialists.

greentech welcomed agreements made to invest in renewable energy sources, saying the sector’s scale-up must be supported by a focus on quality across the entire value chain.

Industry experts will come together at the prestigious Solar Quality 2021 event on December 7 and 8 to discuss future growth, with greentech one of the event’s key sponsors.

Organised by SolarPower Europe, the primary energy and climate association representing 38 countries across the entire solar energy supply chain, the event is a key date in the industry calendar.

greentech will be represented by data analyst Hannes Schuetze in the artificial intelligence (AI) and data-driven quality management seminar, taking place on December 7.

Yaw Ofori, Managing Director for greentech UK, said: Solar Quality provides a fantastic overview of the developments from the past year, any best practice guidelines as well as exploring the challenges many of us face in the sector.

“It is also an opportunity to explore emerging technologies, including AI, which forms part of the seminar that Hannes will be speaking on.

The event also allows us to put a laser-like focus on best practice around solar quality, which builds confidence for investors, operators and developers alike.

“Following the COP26 discussions, we know the world is looking to capitalise upon and invest in renewable power sources like solar and approach the issue from a global perspective. Initiatives such Green Grids, with its One Sun, One World, One Grid vision, is an opportunity for all of us in the industry to contribute not only to the discussion but ultimately the action which can combat climate change.
