A new solar array that incorporates bifacial solar modules (those that absorb the sun’s energy from the top side and the bottom side) was installed outside the Institute of Energy Conversion in 2021, offering new research capacity to students and other researchers. Among those working on the array in this shot are (left to right): undergraduate Ryan Purnell (on the ladder), Kunal Vohra, a recent UD graduate student, IEC research technician Shannon Field, Professor Steven Hegedus, leader of the project, and doctoral student Sergio Sepúlveda.
