Covestro and SolarKapital
First Solar PV modules achieve a 4% energy gain
As part of a continuing quest to boost solar efficiency, solar energy, financial services firm SolarKapital decided to run a commercial project using the Covestro Retrofit Anti-Reflective (AR) coating at its solar plant in Türkenfeld, Bavaria, Germany. The result: a 4% extra energy gain in PV modules manufactured by the First Solar company.
A hands-on approach
Evaluating the technology
Improving performance of older PV modules
A major goal of this project was to evaluate the wider implications of implementing a retrofit. We assessed whether or not we achieved this goal by evaluating three different aspects of performance: speed and professionalism, level of support, and environmental implications. Covestro was able to deliver in all three areas. ”
