Smart Renewable Energy Forum: Digitalization Driving The New Energy World

The digital transformation in the energy industry has fundamentally changed the electricity landscape. In the future, the energy supply will be ensured by a range of renewable energy plants, storage systems and consumers acting as prosumers. The Smart Renewable Energy Forum at Intersolar Europe, the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners, is, therefore, focusing on new concepts and technologies for digital networking along the energy value-added chain from May 31–June 2.

Fraunhofer Enables Manufacturers Of PV Modules To Keep Pace With Tech Advances

With SmartCalc.CTM, Fraunhofer ISE has developed a software that helps reduce the cell-to-module power losses in PV module manufacturing. Research and industry invest lots of know-how in improving solar cell efficiency. In order that PV modules benefit from the advances in cell efficiency, the cell-to-module integration process must be performed reliably with low losses. The software was developed with this in mind and harnesses the near 40-year expertise, in this field, of Fraunhofer.
