Power optimisers for PV systems – what’s behind them?

Optimisers for PV systems are small devices that are installed on the back of photovoltaic modules. Their main function is to monitor each module and maximise capacity independently of the other modules. This is important if the PV system is regularly shaded. In this article, we explore their benefits and find out when it makes sense to use optimisers.  (more…)

2023 will be the year of n-type modules

2023 appears to be a year of technological innovation for solar modules. Two trends in particular are expected to determine production in the industry: First of all, there will be improved efficiency thanks to the increasing use of n-type M10 solar cells. In addition, higher capacity is to be expected, with a particular focus on weight and size. (more…)
