The operation and maintenance (O&M) of a solar asset — also known as “asset management” — is key to reducing the volatility of its energy output over the long term.
DSD’s VP of Design & Engineering, Ben Jones, talks about the process of designing solar canopies, the evolution of ESG strategies, Ted Lasso, and more.
This slow evolution of energy strategies — gradually increasing renewables while still clinging on to the “tried and true” — needs to be accelerated.
