Scientists improve measurements of solar panel power output
Hamburg, Germany (UPI) Sep 18, 2015
For most buyers and sellers, uncertainty isn't good. It leads to lost value and unrealized profits. The solar panel industry knows this problem well, as the instruments used to gauge the power potential of photovoltaic cells are frustratingly inaccurate. But now, a team of European researchers has shown new measurement methods are able to halve the margin of error for calculating a PV cell's output. Currently, photovoltaic solar panels are traded at prices based on their maximum power po ... read more
