Solar power plant owners, financiers and developers in need of objective monitoring of solar asset performance gained an important resource in the creation of the world’s largest resource of independent solar expertise. DNV GL, the independent global advisory, certification and energy experts, recently acquired one of the world’s largest independent solar monitoring companies, GreenPowerMonitor (GPM). The combined resources now include more than 150 solar experts across the globe, facilitating more than 5500 successful solar projects, and more than 5.5 GW of managed solar resources.
The resulting team brings much-needed stability to the independent monitoring industry, which has been marked in recent years by frequent mergers and acquisitions, many of limited success.GreenPowerMonitor (GPM) has been acquired by an established leading global energy consultancy whose history stretches back to 1864. GPM itself has been profitable for close to a decade and is continuing to expand, according to GPM’s CEO for the Americas, Tor Blackstad.
Under the new relationship, combined knowledge from successfully supporting more than 5,500 solar projects worldwide is now available to provide solar customers insights to understand and improve the performance of their solar assets.
Hudson and Blackstad as well as other DNV GL and GPM experts will be available at booths #1835 (DNV GL) and #1633 (GPM) to answer questions on their combined offerings at Solar Power International 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada 12 to 15 September, 2016.
