RE: Can solar panels on a moving object have high efficiency?

in STEMGeeks6 days ago

I agree on both the points you have described above, being helpful in increasing the efficiency of the panels. How ever there is a big obstacle that might be faced with moving objects in getting high output. We have seen in stationary panels, they are aligned w.r.t. direction of Sun rays so as to get maximum output. If the panels keep on moving and also Sun rays due to revolution of Sun, their mutual alignment will keep on changing. This might affect the efficiency of the solar panel. I may be wrong, but these are my thoughts. Thanks

Yeah, I understand the importance of the direction of the sun's light. But these days there are new innovative panels that come with good efficiency even in shadow. So bright light is what matters now. Maybe these panels are not available everywhere but soon it is going to be the future.
