World’s first full-size IBC bifacial solar module takes in light from both sides

What if both sides of a solar panel could take in light? That’s the idea pursued by researchers at the Solar Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS), National University of Singapore, and the International Solar Energy Research Center Konstanz in Germany. They’ve succeeded in developing and fabricating the first full-size interdigitated back contact (IBC) bifacial solar module in the world.
