The global solar installation of bifacial modules has achieved rapid growth

Bifacial modules have achieved rapid growth in recent years. The global installed capacity of bifacial has been rising from only 97 MW in 2016 to 7000 MW in 2019.  Bifacial panels will account for 17.2% of solar market share by 2024, according to the Wood Mackenzie Consultancy. 

But what type of solar cells are these modules and how do they work?  

The bifacial solar module is a solar PV that produces energy from both sides, front and rear. This is due to having embedded solar cells on both sides. This makes these modules into high-efficiency modules if utilized and installed correctly. This means the real efficiency of the module relies on the albedo effect of the environment it is installed in.
