Global Trends in Photovoltaics – Renewable Energy Talk with Gerhard Mütter (AES)

On April 13, 2018 we had the pleasure to welcome O&M PV expert Gerhard Mütter at the Renewable Energy Talk.

Gerhard Mütter is Technical Director of Alternative Energy Solutions GmbH (AES), where he leads, in the function of Owner Representative Advisory (ORA), supervision of O&M for PV-Parks. Together with the international team of experts at AES, Gerhard developed PEAK, the AES Performance Efficiency Acceleration Key technology, a leading-edge data analysis service using special algorithms including machine learning for exploring big data.

At this talk, Gerhard Mütter talked about recent trends in O&M of large PV plants to optimize electricity production to the maximum. He gave a good overview of the most common issues and problems leading to a reduced performance during the different phases of the life cycle of a PV plant. But he also gave insights into special details on Advanced Data Analytics, especially the use of methodologies from Artificial Intelligence in error detection and production forecast. The audience was eager to learn more about current trends and topics in the O&M of utility scale plants from an expert in this field.
Over drinks and snacks, Alumni and students of the different programs got together in informal discussions and networking.

The Renewable Energy Talks serve to discuss recent topics and trends in the renewable energy sector with experts in their respective fields.
