With a background in the development of Low Concentration PV, focusing on the temperature of PV naturally became the next step.
We believe that Energy costs can be lowered by finding the right solutions for standard mass-produced Solar Modules, especially those used for utility-scale installations within areas of relatively high irradiation. Our goals were to improve temperature management of PV modules, without adding costs per Wattpeak and keeping production uncomplicated. We utilized Design Thinking – with a “less is more” approach – to find a solution that would not add costs, transportation weight or require production changes.
The solution resulted in the COOLBACK® design.
COOLBACK® is an integrated backsheet / frame solution that improves performance in output and lifespan by cooling Solar Modules through natural convection and radiation.
