ACEP Researchers Win Solar Poster Award at National Conference
Erin Whitney and Michelle Wilber attended the 46th Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Photovoltaics Specialists Conference in Chicago June 17-21 to present their work on solar PV installations in Alaska and to learn about cutting-edge research in the field.
Whitney and Wilber took a special interest in presentations on bifacial (2-sided) solar panel modeling and performance, solar prediction and grid integration, and solar in microgrids.
They won a poster prize for their poster “Catching the Midnight Sun: Performance and Cost of Solar Photovoltaic Technology in Alaska.”
