Lowering solar module temperatures with radiative cooling, heat pipes

Post by admin »

A recent news item was about how large solar farms are attempting to keep solar modules from heating up through the use of solutions such as radiative cooling and heat pipes.

Given that the efficiency of solar modules can increase to some extent if the temperature is maintained around 25 deg C, do you think that the higher yields could justify the extra costs needed for cooling the modules, especially for hot, desert regions such as those in the Middle East and Africa?
