Cross-Climate PV Performance and Reliability: Why Global Data Are Critical to a Reliable Solar Future

- Sandia National Labs, Fraunhofer CSP, Hochschule Anhalt, Hi-ERN -

Intended to be an interactive session, this panel addresses the need for global data-sharing as a key strategy for identifying performance and reliability issues early-on and for informing a robust solar future, despite the challenges of rapid growth, climatic instability and technological evolution. To that end, we will 1) highlight data of greatest value; 2) mechanisms and opportunities for information sharing; and 3) solicit feedback on PV CAMPER’s network of field laboratories and research institutions and how they can better support the global PV community.
