dig4morE - Digitized O&M Management for Securing Yields of Solar Plants

dig4morE is a research project of funded by the the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of the 8th Energy research framework program (FKZ: 03EE1090B). As part of the funding HI ERN receives almost 1.019.726 Euros over a period of 3 years.

dig4morE is a cooperative project coordinated by Sunsniffer GmbH. For dig4morE HI ERN is joining forces with the companies Sunsniffer GmbH, SUNSET-Energietechnik GmbH and Aquila Capital Management GmbH to determine potentials for improving O&M of large scale solar parcs.

Many PV systems in Germany are not exploiting their potential in electricity generation. This becomes clear when looking at thermographic images, which show conspicuous heat signatures in about 8% of the modules, which in turn indicate power reductions. In dig4morE we want to detect and activate this unused potential and further system deficits by means of high-precision sensor technology, modern monitoring and evaluation concepts as well as optimized operation management strategies. Through these measures, we additionally expect an extension of the lifetime of the solar parks and we strive for the development of concepts for new, low-loss large-scale projects.
