How do solar modules age under the desert sun?
Scientists from Saxony-Anhalt and Morocco are research partners Intense sunlight, searing heat and high exposure to dust – solar modules in the desert are exposed to different climate conditions than those in Germany. An interesting challenge for the solar researchers at the Fraunhofer-Center for Silicon Photovoltaics - CSP in Halle in the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. As cooperation partners to the Moroccan research institute IRESEN, they have developed a photovoltaic test park which has been built near Marrakesh. The scientists can now evaluate how the solar modules will age
