SolarPower Europe member and report contributor BayWa r.e., is at the forefront of this exciting digital transitions in a number of key areas across its business.

On October 23rd, SolarPower Europe published the Digitalisation and Solar report, that is thought to be the first in-depth analysis of digital technology in solar PV in the world.

The report seeks to lay out how solar can make the most from market opportunities arising from digitalisation, such as smart solar homes, peer-to-peer electricity trading and high-tech O&M.

SolarPower Europe member and report contributor BayWa r.e., is at the forefront of this exciting digital transitions in a number of key areas across its business. 

Included in the report is BayWa r.e.’s involvement in the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Solar Train project (G.A. No. 7214521 - info: www.solar-train.eu) and utilisation of drones for aerial infrared thermal imaging analysis for its operation services business. 

The project has also been recently presented during the European Utility Week in Amsterdam, in the SolarPower Europe Digitalisation Taskforce Expert Workshop. 

BayWa r.e. has developed a clear roadmap for digital transformation, which will allow us to implement the necessary steps, driven by a dedicated team in our headquarter in Munich. 

The objective is to increase the efficiency and the quality of the operation and maintenance processes, as well as to offer new IT and data management services.

Our participation in the EU’s Solar Train project, aimed at developing predictive maintenance models through big data analysis, is already informing our digitalisation strategy.
