Predicting energy yields for photovoltaic systems with imec’s precision model

How the Energy Yield Model, developed at EnergyVille, is guiding efficient solar energy utilization 


In the quest for sustainable energy, solar power stands as a vital player, yet its unpredictable nature challenges accurate energy (and financial) yield predictions.

Within their partnership at EnergyVille, imec and Hasselt University have tackled this obstacle head-on, through a groundbreaking Energy Yield Model.

Unlike traditional models, this bottom-up approach intricately considers light, temperature, and electrical dynamics within solar panels. It offers unparalleled precision and can become a beacon for efficient solar energy utilization.

This article explores the Energy Yield Model, from its core components to real-world applications, and is a must-read for those passionate about advancing solar technology.
