Bi-Facial PVs with cold mirrors

This research project aims to test bifacial PVs using unique techniques. The study involved an innovative concept in multiple ways to create a PV-TEG Hybrid. The PV used was a custom made Bi-Facial PV, which can absorb solar radiation from both sides and hence provide more power than a normal PV panel of the same size.
