One month ago, on valentine’s day, I got up at 4 in the morning. Not to surprise my wife with a breakfast but to catch a flight to Marrakesh in Morocco to visit the Green Energy Park of IRESEN (Research Institute for Solar Energy and New Energies). With me I brought two new DustIQ’s PV soiling monitoring systems for testing by Dr. Ahmed Alami Merrouni at this excellent site.
When I was in the middle of preparations for field tests of DustIQ, Solarplaza published the whitepaper ‘Soiling - origins, measurements, analysis & solutions’. A subject that is the focus of a large team of Kipp & Zonen colleagues at the moment, soiling. It’s nice to see that we are not the only ones researching this matter!
