﻿Schott Solar tops energy-yield tests for solar photo-voltaic
Schott Solar has been awarded first place in the 2010 Energy Yield Test by TÜV Rheinland for its Perform Poly 225 photo-voltaic module. New software, a shadow-free test roof and precise measuring equipment has enabled TÜV Rheinland to measure the energy output of PV modules and compare them with one another, The tests were outdoors, not in a climate chamber with a Sun simulator. During the test, the individual modules were automatically kept at maximum power point so that no participant was at a disadvantage.
Dr Martin Heming, CEO of Schott Solar AG, commented on the TÜV results: ’Optimising energy output is our top priority at Schott Solar, next to producing high-quality solar modules. The most recent test results confirm our success. The proof that our modules supply high energy output and offer superior performance stability gives investors and photo-voltaic plant operators a reliable basis for planning the entire lifespan of a solar plant, securing good returns.’
