Solar power

OutSmart and solar power

The amount of sunlight that strikes the earth's surface in an hour and a half is enough to cover the world's energy consumption for a full year. Therefore, solar farms have ramped up in the past decade. Besides performing the operational management of wind farms, OutSmart also performs theses services for solar projects. The aim is to predict and optimize returns and to relieve you of all your concerns.

We have more than 20 years' experience in the operational management of renewable energy projects in the Netherlands. We are happy to put this knowledge and experience to work for you. For an individual solar farm or for a combined project with wind, sun and/or storage. For co-operations, insurers, and solar farm owners. From our independent position, we identify the risks and opportunities and organize our business operations in such a way that we provide you with maximum peace of mind.

Our role

We take care of the operational management of your solar farm. We focus mainly on the operational phase, where risk management is key. To achieve this, we track and monitor the performance and status of your solar farm 24/7, 365 days a year.

Our goal for your solar farm is to be one hundred per cent profitable when the sun shines. You do not want unnecessary downtime due to unplanned maintenance, malfunctions, or safety concerns.

Power of predictability

We track and monitor the performance of your solar farm. We do this with our own IT infrastructure. We link your project data to our IT monitoring system for maintenance, safety, and certification. We share the results with you in real time via a clear and tailor-made dashboard.

We also use the data and insights for monitoring and negotiating with maintenance parties, offtakers and suppliers. Our own data give us an advantage in this. We know exactly what is going on and what needs to be done.

Since we have a clear picture of the returns, we have a grip on the costs, lifespan and expected maintenance. This creates trust, optimizes the result, and guarantees safety. We look beyond maintenance companies and suppliers.

Solar operations

We specialize in the operational management of solar farms, in terms of technical, operational and asset management. In this we have gained extensive knowledge and experience. From there, we have developed our own services and specialisms. In the case of solar energy, these are:

  • Safety on and around the solar farm.
  • Increasing operational hours.
  • Combination with wind energy.
  • TÜV solar energy inspection.
  • Energy storage and supply to the grid.
