PV Test Station

Established in 2012, by request of the Danish Energy Agency, the PV Test Station aims at comparing the performances of a number of PV panels in real life conditions.

The test station consists of 40 panels (2 per model) from both European and international manufacturers. Data are collected on an hourly base since the establishment of the station and they can be found below.

The facility consists of both monochristalline and polychristalline panels (left and right respectively, in the picture). The nominal power is 9.5 kW.
