In locations, such as remote islands, where labour resource is sparse or expensive, how can we deliver solar affordably? In sectors, such as mining, where clients want to contract power for short terms, how can we make solar financially attractive? How can we lower the project-specific engineering and development costs to make solar more cost competitive? Modularity provides answers to these questions, by lowering on-site activity, enabling relocation and facilitating an off-the-shelf scalable… CONTINUE READING
