DOE, Industry Develop Software For Calculating #Solar PV Degradation Rates

DOE, Industry Develop Software For Calculating #Solar PV Degradation Rates

A new software package developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and industry partners SunPower and kWh Analytics is designed to improve the measurement of a solar PV system’s expected lifetime performance. RdTools combines best practices with years of NREL degradation research to deliver new methodologies that change how solar field production data is evaluated. The software package makes it possible to accurately evaluate PV systems faster, despite common challenges with performance data, says NREL. “There’s a high level of interest in this software because it provides user-friendly, accurate and objective assessments that can help owners make sense of their data,” says Dirk Jordan, engineer and solar PV researcher at NREL. “We spent years building consensus in the industry around a common set of analytical rules. Now, PV st...
