Research & Development
We have established Solar PV Centers of Excellence for applied research, testing and training in multiple institutes. Our Solar Lab features the latest advancements in solar technology and leverage the IoT for the collection of data for research purpose. The system is designed in such a way that researchers can focus on design and engineering, as the measurement is automated and it is easy to download and analyze data.
We also use the solar labs for testing and benchmarking of solar components, design and installation practices. We are now providing the testing and benchmarking as a service to Solar brands, EPCs, developers and other stakeholders. A snap from one of our performance studies comparing solar module performance across brands is given below.
