By Kelly Pickerel Material innovation is ramping up in solar as the industry aims to address the widespread decrease in performance over time that affects PV modules, according to Lux Research.
Solar modules degrade over the years, due to environmental factors, causing performance drops and even failures. Such degradation is growing in importance because of its impact on financial models, long-term reliability, and adoption in regions with extreme climates.
“New evidence of climate-dependent degradation is creating new opportunities for non-standard material adoption in module packaging,” said Tyler Ogden, Lux Research Analyst and lead author of the report titled, “Extending Lifetime and Performance: Breaking Down the
