When it comes to solar PV systems, mounting systems are a classic focus for developers, EPCs, module supplies, asset owners, and all key stakeholders. However, the very backbone of these setups is the solid foundation, and in our upcoming webinar, we'll dig into this often underestimated, yet critical, aspect of solar power.

Climate change is seeing rising weather variance across many parts of the world, with more aggressive storms, winds, and extreme conditions becoming more frequent. Solid foundations for solar plants not only resist high winds and provide a sturdy and stable base for the solar module, mounting systems and associated BOM, but also distribute weight to avoid sinking into the ground. They’re also relatively easy to install and custom solutions are available.

New products are able to offer more benefits for owners without changing installation operations or techniques. And the use of steel in foundations remains one of the most viable options, offering robustness, infinite recyclability potential, and its long-term durability, especially when combined with protective coatings.

Backing up these assertions, pv magazine Webinar partner, ArcelorMittal, a leading supplier of steel globally, including for the solar industry, will join us to talk about its solutions for strong foundation design and durability, and options to reduce environmental impact as part of its XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel program. Jérôme Guth, head of segments & products business development, Corinne Dieu, product leader for metallic coated steels, and Jean-Louis Remlinger, solar market senior analyst from ArcelorMittal will provide updates on its efforts to continue to strengthen the corrosion resistance of its Magnelis® coated steel, including various coating options, to increase the lifetime of solar investments.

pv magazine Webinar content :
○ The benefits of Magnelis® coated steel for foundations, poles, and posts, in a solar system
○ Trial results of high strength steels for ramming poles and the FEM model
○ The benefits of high strength steel, in terms of weight, cost, and CO2 footprint reduction
○ Reducing steel’s CO2 footprint via XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel
○ Q&A

We encourage you to ask questions, which can be submitted beforehand or during the webinar through a chat window. Tristan Rayner, Editor at pv magazine, will be the moderator of this webinar.
