Light-induced degradation (LID) shaves the efficiency of silicon solar cells by about 2%, which adds up to a significant drop in power output over the lifespan of the technology deployed in the field.
Also on the rise: SolRiver Capital buys an Oregon solar development portfolio, Swell Energy expands its distributed power plant model, and a shift in focus is coming to a DOE loan program.
The patent pertains to its Bi-Directional Optimizer for Storage Systems, which was part of a 2020 study with Duke Energy about retrofitting standalone solar plants with storage.
Solar and wind will grow, but coal will again be cost competitive, reversing what EIA said was a trend observed over recent decades.
The hail stress sequence aims to address concerns from insurers and asset owners about the ability of PV modules to withstand severe hail impacts.
Researchers conducted a global assessment of rooftop solar PV potential using high-resolution imagery, big data, and machine learning.
Accelerated and unprecedented additions of renewable generation and energy storage will be needed, but the cost of making the shift is far lower than the status quo, a report argues.
SunDown detects and classifies per-panel faults without the need for additional sensors and was developed by researchers at the University of Massachusetts.
