Geo Future LLC
Since 1993 Mr. Silva have worked in the solar PV industry (i.e. Photocom Inc, Kyocera Solar, Power Light, Sun Power, OptiSolar, Solar World, First Solar, etc), 18 years international EPC experience (Venezuela, USA, Canada, Spain, etc.) and 8 years in Project Development Engineering (Chile, Brazil, Panama, Honduras, Argentina, etc.).
Mr Silva currently works as an Independent Technical Advisor for multibillion-dollar corporations. He is an enthusiastic of the science of where: “Geospatial Information Systems (GIS)” and a co-founder of GeoFuture, a startup technology company developing an optimization software that helps Owners to identify the best single axis tracker for their projects.
Mr. Silva’s solar PV knowledge plus his early days working in rural development; place him at a unique position to face challenges related to any PV project scenario. He believes with the use of automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence, GeoFuture could provide comprehensive and repeatable methodologies to effectively solve many challenging problems; such as performing preliminary site grading optimization in project’s early stages.
With major components’ cost trending down, earth work more and more gains increased relevance in the project’s cost structure; therefore, producing optimum surface design through balancing cut and fill and considering slope, tracker specifications and array groupings, projects’ economic feasibility could be increased due to incremental cost optimization.
We are excited to share with you our experience and some of the lessons learned along our journey.
