Event description
One day educational workshop for solar professionals looking to improve their knowledge of solar resource assessment and PV energy modeling

About this Event

Join us for a day of educational training, delivered by top experts from the Solargis team. This event will be packed with the latest insights and best practices on solar energy assessment. You will also learn about new Solargis online tools. It's also a good opportunity to meet Solargis CEO and CTO and to network with industry peers whilst enjoying good food and refreshments.

The workshop is being held on the first day of the EUPVSEC Conference&Exhibition.
