Solar Edition Instagram: Is Bifacial Technology About To The Mainstream Of Solar Power Generation? According to Forbes news, Solar photovoltaic (PV) power led the increase in renewable energy generation around the world in 2017, with capacity growing by as much as a third during the year What if there was a way to increase the power generation of solar photovoltaic panels by up to 15% and even as much as 50% under ideal conditions? In theory, bifacial technology can deliver this. So is bifacial technology about to become a mainstream technology?
Unlike traditional monofacial panels, bifacial panels are capable of capturing solar irradiation from the front and back. This means they have the capacity to generate power from the sun by capturing the sunlight reflected from the ground, as well as direct sunlight, therefore increasing the total energy generation. As standard crystalline solar cells used during the past 30 years are reaching their physical limits, the PERC (passivated emitter and rear cell) structure is enabling manufacturers to achieve higher efficiencies. As the technical know-how to introduce PERC technology has become available along the value chain, it constitutes a new viable platform to manufacture high-power and high-efficiency solar panels. The number of manufacturers producing bifacial panels is increasing, and there is a corresponding increase in the number of installations. There is no standard design as yet, with varying design criteria from framed and frameless, monocrystalline and polycrystalline designs.
