Desert Module: Higher Yields through Optimized Design
How can module components and module design be adapted to the stress factors that are particularly prevalent in desert environments, thereby increasing the yield and lifetime of the modules? Fraunhofer researcher Hamed Hanifi has investigated this question. His results have now been published in an article in Applied Energy.
European trade body SolarPower Europe has just kicked off the process of drawing up a set of best practice guidelines for solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors. In an interview with PV Tech Ralph Gottschalg and Adele Ara discuss why the guidelines are needed and how they are taking shape.
