KET has started the €535,000 funded project “SoLifE”
In cooperation with Solarword AG and ESDA Technologie GmbH, KET started a project aimed at increasing the lifetime of PV-modules. Within the next three years, the practical integration of phase-change materials into the next generation of PV-modules will be investigated under the coordination of Prof. Dr. Stefan Krauter. The main factors contributing to the degradation of the modules can be limited using targeted cooling and temperature stabilization of the solar cells. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) supports this project by contributing €535,000.
