Energy in the Balance: PV Reliability to Power the Energy Transition

Heather Mirletz, Silvana Ovaitt, Macarena Mendez Ribo, Seetharaman Sridhar, Teresa Barnes

Research output: NRELPresentation


We present an analysis of the effects of reliability on our ability to achieve the energy transition deployment targets. We examine three end of life modes as captured in the PV ICE tool; degradation, failures, and project lifetime. Recommendations are made for improving PV reliability for achieving energy energy transition.
