  • This first ever made unique and independent, 170+ page report of Renewable Market Watch™ analyzes global market for drones (UAVs) application in solar power industry regarding market dynamics, technology characteristics, industry structure, innovations and key industry vendors. Through extensive research and discussions with experts in the industry, Renewable Market Watch™ has identified a series of market trends that will impact this market over the coming decade.

    Solar power industry is developing with fast paces in the past decade and at the end of 2015 almost 230 GW cumulative solar PV power capacity is operational at global level. This means more than 920 million solar PV modules are subject to physical wear out and need regular inspections throughout their lifespan. Considering the harsh environmental conditions faced by many solar power plants and the logistical difficulties of panel inspection, it’s clear that facility maintenance is a constant challenge for solar operations. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) - commonly known as drones - can help provide quicker, effortless and cost-effective monitoring and maintenance for even the largest of solar farms.
