This is the website of a research project by Over Easy Solar, in collaboration with Institute for Energy Technology and Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems.

Why vertical?

  • Yield can outperform traditional mounting of monofacial solar panels
  • Panels receive about the same amount of light on both sides
  • Daily energy production during hours with high demands (morning and afternoon)
  • Higher energy production in winter
  • Compatible with green roofs
  • No direct snow loads on panels

About the project

In the project we investigate energy yield, energy simulation, wind loads and material performance for vertical mounting of photovoltaic solar modules.

Financing from the Norwegian Research Council through grant no 332198.
