Two years ago, project developer European Energy and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) started a collaboration. Backed by Denmark's Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP), they would study how to create the optimal framework for so-called bifacial solar panels in a pilot project on peninsula Risø in Eastern Denmark.
Bifacial photovoltaic (PV) panels differ from conventional monofacial ones by harvesting solar energy from both the front and the back. Experience gained during the project has also provided useful knowledge for the parties. And now, two years afterward as the project comes to an end, great potential is seen in bifacial panels.
