Hall
The Leela Hotel
Room
Room: Bandhej

As solar PV technologies advance, three technologies are taking centre stage - PERC (Passivation Rear Contact Cell), TOPCON (Tunnel Oxide Passivated Contact) and Heterojunction technology (HJT). Technology experts from major companies will present their perspectives on these technologies. In additinon, Solar Inverters have seen significant improvements in sizes and efficiencies spanning central, string and microinverters. As the penetration of renewable energy in grid increases and battery storage becoming an integral part of a grid-tied solar plant, the importance of inverters is only expect to increase. Moreover, Operations & Maintenance is becoming more and more driven by AI. The impact of these changes will be the key focus on this session.
