In search of the 'most rational design' for anti-reflective finish
Researchers in Spain have examined different buildings of anti-reflective and anti-soiling finishes for PV module glass, aiming to create a product that uses the most effective equilibrium of desired product homes at the lowest cost. Over a year of testing, the most effective finishes were revealed to increase module result by around 2%, and also the group likewise made a number of monitorings that can influence future developments of coverings for PV module front glass.

Getting serious about dirtying
Scientists in the United States as well as India are examining the influences of staining on PV installations in the Indian state of Gujarat. The group, which discovered that soiling losses for the state might amount to $12 million per year, is searching for inexpensive means to keep an eye on as well as decrease the impacts of staining on modules in the field.

Promising soiling mitigation solutions should not be left to gather dust
A study has estimated the cost of PV project soiling may increase from €3-5 billion last year to €4-7 billion by 2023 due to more extensive deployment in high insolation and soiling-affected regions, such as China and India. The authors of the paper outlined the potential of soiling mitigation technologies while stressing more R&D is needed to reduce costs and for the adoption of such measures on a larger scale.
