DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions Inks Collaboration with Envision

27.03.2018

Geneva – DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions (DuPont) announced it has entered into a cooperation agreement with Envision, a leading digital energy company, to develop advanced predictive analytics in the area of photovoltaic (PV) module degradation and failures. 

The parties will collaborate in field studies of module reliability, including solar panel backsheet failure mechanisms, in order to automate the collection of field data and improve the analytics for ageing solar assets to ensure the strongest possible energy output of sites throughout their lifespan. DuPont and Envision will look to combine their marketing efforts to promote the results and recommended solutions with solar asset owners, energy utilities and project developers, globally.

“DuPont is excited to be working with Envision,” said Stephan Padlewski, regional marketing leader, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, Europe, Middle East & Africa. “By combining our material science capabilities and knowledge with Envision’s expertise in big data analytics, we can help provide asset owners with a quantitative and predictive analysis of ageing for preventive maintenance of solar panels and their components in the field.”

“We are very pleased to collaborate with the DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions organization to create best-in-class analytics for PV module degradation and risk mitigation,” said Kam Mofid, general manager of Solar for Americas and head of Global Solar Center of Excellence, Envision. “Together, we are confident that we can develop very effective degradation analytics that all the key stakeholders in the industry can benefit from.”

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
