Ecoppia，自动化，不含水的光伏（PV）太阳能电池板的清洁解决方案，创新的开发者已经宣布Photovoltaik研究所柏林（PI柏林），是世界上最受尊敬的独立光伏技术测试实验室之一，已证实该公司的E4机器人清洗系统安全上的九个全球市场的领导者制造的太阳能电池板长期使用：英利太阳能，第一太阳能，太阳能前沿，Photowatt，晶澳太阳能，天合光能，加拿大太阳能，晶科能源，昱辉阳光等。 Ecoppia E4是目前市场上唯一的太阳能电池板清洗液接收此类认证。
对光伏太阳能电池板的污垢和灰尘的积累是最大的障碍实用规模的太阳能生产中的一个，并且可以由最多35％的减少输出。 Ecoppia E4清洁机器人采用柔软的超细纤维和空气流量清洗系统每天删除99％的太阳能电池板的灰尘和成本有效地保持最佳的生产水平，全年。自充电，自清洁单元都自动由传感器沿着一个安装的每一行驱动，并且该系统的鲁棒控制启用远程编程，管理和监测。
Ecoppia, an innovative developer of automated, water-free photovoltaic (PV) solar panel cleaning solutions, has announced that Photovoltaik Institut Berlin (PI Berlin), one of the world’s most respected independent PV technology testing laboratories, has certified the company’s E4 robotic cleaning system as safe for long-term use on solar panels manufactured by nine global market leaders: Yingli Solar, First Solar, Solar Frontier, Photowatt, JA Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, Jinko Solar, and ReneSola. Ecoppia E4 is the only solar panel cleaning solution on the market to receive such certification.
“We are proud to be the first and only solar panel cleaning solution certified by a top-tier photovoltaic institute like PI Berlin,” said Eran Meller, CEO of Ecoppia. “This strong statement proves once again that Ecoppia’s patented technology is ideally suited to meet the varying demands of geographies around the world, and provides a cleaning solution that is both effective and completely safe for use over the lifetime of an installation.”
The accumulation of dirt and dust on PV solar panels is one of the greatest impediments to utility-scale solar energy production, and can reduce output by up to 35 percent. Ecoppia E4 cleaning robots use a soft microfiber and air flow cleaning system to remove 99 percent of solar panel dust daily and cost-effectively maintain optimal production levels year-round. The self-charging, self-cleaning units are automatically driven by sensors along each row of an installation, and the system’s robust controls enable remote programming, management and monitoring.
Using sand from two separate Middle Eastern deserts, PI Berlin conducted rigorous stress tests and destruction analyses on the E4 system, simulating 20 years of daily cleaning. Tests were performed both on site and in PI Berlin’s laboratory in Germany. For its sandstorm simulation, PI Berlin used more than 2.5 grams of sand spread across each module in a frequency that corresponded to 45 dust storms per year, or a total of 900 dust storms. For all panels tested, PI Berlin found that the Ecoppia solution caused no micro cracks or power degradation whatsoever.
As a result of the PI Berlin testing results, two major solar panel providers have already supplied written certification for the installation of Ecoppia’s technology on their panels around the world. Additional vendor certifications are underway, and PI Berlin will continue to test E4 to ensure the system’s suitability for panels from other major vendors.
