Project: High-efficiency bifacial PV Modules and Systems for flat roof applications

Acronym BI-FACE (Reference Number: 28)
Duration 01/03/2018 - 28/02/2020
Project Topic The scope of the project BI-FACE is to develop innovative bifacial modules and systems for flat roofs. The results will include three novel variations for bifacial modules and systems which are tested in three different climate zone: subtropical (Cyprus; University of Cyprus is a subcontractor of ECN), temperate (Austria) and maritime temperate (Netherlands) The ultimate design of these systems is challenging due to the large number of parameters that influence the energy yield (like tilt and distance between modules, reflecting surfaces, shading, cell spacing, materials used and weather conditions).
