Both higher energy yields and longer lifetimes are needed for PV modules to meet growing customer expectations. Couple this with the fast moving nature of PV technology – larger formats, new cell interconnection techniques and many more can all affect long term performance – and it’s clear that understanding and mitigating the various mechanisms that lead to performance has never been more important. In this pv magazine Webinar we’ll examine the roles of temperature, humidity and mechanical stress in driving some of these mechanisms, and how Coolback’s innovative solution promises to limit the effects of these, ensuring both better day-to-day module performance and a longer operational lifetime.
Integrating cost effective cooling methods in module manufacturing to increase module output and lifetime
According to Simon Meijer, CEO of COOLBACK Company, and our webinar partner, up to 10% of output and up to 20% of lifetime is lost through this excess of heat in the PV module; this is by far the biggest impediment to improving output – far greater than reflection, dust or humidity. If this is the case, should module manufacturers be taking a closer look at heat losses, and looking at ways to improve output by thermal management? And can asset managers, EPCs and investors improve their solar projects output and lifetime with effective heat management?
