The industrial development of the bifacial solar module over the last few years represents one of the most significant events in the world of photovoltaic systems. Today, this technology constitutes one of the most promising trends in the global solar market. During Intersolar South America, Convert will present its bi-facial tracker, an innovative solution to gain more solar energy from the panels.
Kiwa NV and Sinovoltaics Group announced today a new strategic partnership, stating that it will enable solar plant investors and developers to accede the most comprehensive scope of testing, de-risking and certification services in the solar PV and energy storage industry.
Fsight and international energy companies have launched one of the most advanced distributed energy peer-to-peer pilot projects in the world.
A combination of a heat sink effect, with radiation and passive convection heat dissipation results in cooler modules, and higher power output. This is the technique applied by Coolback, which launched its new backsheet concept at Intersolar Europe this week. Coolback Simon Meijer sets out the technology, effects and strategy to market.
Bifacial modules represent a growing proportion of leading manufacturers output each year, but the technology still poses questions for installations in the field. Using both sides of a module to generate power changes parameters across whole the PV system, and necessitates innovation from the manufacturers of trackers and system components. The potential for higher energy output is clear, but new standards and practices are needed to ensure systems get the most out of bifacial modules. At its Bifacial Tracker Evaluation Center (BiTEC) in Livermore, California, Soltec is working to ensure that opportunities provided by this technology are well and truly seized.
In the following interview, Enerray’s business development and sales director, Antonio Capua discusses the current O&M and EPC situation in Italy. Overall, he says there are opportunities to be grasped by those companies that have a proven quality and reliability track record.
Under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Project, GOPV, Convert is working on reducing the LCOE and LCA of large PV plants. In this vein, it has developed a new tracker and tracking strategy focused on the use of bifacial modules. Find out more at this year’s Intersolar Europe.
pv magazine recently sat down with Enerray’s Business Development and Sales Director Antonio Capua to discuss the company’s latest plans for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The interview took place at the trade show booth of Agripower, which like Enerray is owned by SECI Energia S.p.A., the energy holding of the even bigger Maccaferri Industrial Group founded in 1879. Maccaferri Group, as well as SECI Energia and Enerray, are all based in Bologna and in 2017 Maccaferri’s overall revenues amounted to over $1 billion worldwide.
