Temperature level and also the situation for bifacial
U.S. scientists have developed a design to anticipate the performance of bifacial PV at project level. Their outcomes reveal that when improved temperature level sensitivity is properly taken into account, the advantage of bifacial modules could be even larger than formerly assumed. And also for upcoming module modern technologies like heterojunction particularly, it can imply bifacial is viable in a lot more parts of the world.
