Bayesian optimisation yields up to 23% lower levelised cost of electricity of bifacial solar farms. 
Value of bifacial photovoltaics used with highly reflective ground materials on single‐axis trackers and fixed‐tilt systems: a Danish case study
The energy produced by bifacial photovoltaic (PV) arrays can be augmented via albedo enhancements. However, the value of the additional energy must outweigh the costs for such modifications to be
Detailed illumination model for bifacial solar cells.
A detailed illumination model for bifacial photovoltaic modules in a large PV field that considers direct light and diffuse light from the sky and treats the illumination of the ground in detail and calculates the irradiance components on arbitrarily many positions along the module.

This article describes a multidimensional visualization approach to the analysis of the levelized cost of energy (LCOE), which shows that the influence of a single parameter deviates with respect to
Optimizing metal grating back reflectors for III-V-on-silicon multijunction solar cells.
Investigation of all geometrical optimization parameters of the grating shows that the structure is most sensitive towards the period, a parameter highly controllable in manufacturing by inference lithography, which shows a pathway to exceed the current world record efficiency of the III-V-on-silicon solar cell technology.
Tackling the Risk of Stranded Electricity Assets with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
The Paris Agreement on climate change requires nations to keep the global temperature within the 2°C carbon budget. Achieving this temperature target means stranding more than 80% of all proven
Simulating bifacial perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells in large PV fields
We report on simulations of idealized bifacial perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells which are placed in a large PV field. These simulations are used to perform energy-yield optimizations for two-

Analysis of the Annual Performance of Bifacial Modules and Optimization Methods
Bifacial modules have the advantage of capturing sunlight from front as well as from rear surfaces, and therefore, they are able to produce larger amounts of energy, compared with standard
Economic feasibility of bifacial silicon solar cells
Bifacial solar cells and modules are a promising approach to increase the energy output of photovoltaic systems, and therefore decrease levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). This work discusses the
A Practical Irradiance Model for Bifacial PV Modules
A model, suitable for a row or multiple rows of photovoltaic (PV) modules, is presented for estimating the backside irradiance for bifacial PV modules. The model, which includes the effects of
PV module power gain due to bifacial design. Preliminary experimental and simulation data
Tests and subsequent simulation are needed for rational use of bifacial instead of traditional mono facial modules for generation of additional energy. Outdoor measurements of bifacial modules were
