All-Class Albedometers

Whatever your need, goal, or application

by Dmytro Podolskyy, Business Development Manager, EKO EU

Bi-facial PV installations are no longer an expensive add-on, an aspirational target, or a ‘nice to have’. The economic case for bifacial technology has rapidly improved in recent years, for large PV plant projects in particular, and far from being a trend, bifacial is here to stay.

Indeed, even traditional mono-facial panels can profit from using reflected light to produce additional gains, proving the fundamental value of on-site irradiance measurement, whatever your set-up.

However, reflected light is much harder to model and predict than Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI) and Plane of Array (POA) irradiance. The spectral properties of reflected light are different, and for anyone serious about albedo, those properties require concerted research and operational measurement. Understanding albedo, optimising the surroundings and reflective surfaces can, for instance, lead to high-impact, low-cost improvements to overall output and efficiency.

That’s why more and more albedometers are appearing in PV fields around the world. Pyranometers that measure reflected irradiance can be installed at the rear of a PV module in a host of different locations, all helping to ensure a good representation of reflected irradiance. x2 pyranometers...
