Large-format Modules (LFM) and Solar Trackers: Key Considerations and Impact on Plant LCOE

About this event

The rapid adoption of large-format modules (LFM) has potentially become one of the most significant cost cutting innovations in the history of solar.

With module technology advances in split-cell and multi-bus capabilities, PV module manufacturers can now provide LFM that can optimize power density and lower BOM cost at a scale that was not previously viable. However, with such accelerated adoption, the rest of the industry faces the challenge of being prepared for these larger modules which have design implications that are mechanical, electrical and weather related.

Join Fichtner, RES, Nextracker and PV Tech in this exciting roundtable discussion, providing expert analysis from the perspectives of an independent engineer, solar developer and solar tracker on how to fully realize the benefits of LFM and how to plan for bigger things in the future.
